    It is perfectly safe to walk on parquet flooring without falling through the joints in the floor. Even whilst holding an umbrella upside down and filled with pineapple and cantaloupe scoops. And even while doing so reading a calendar today. Or every four years when a certain anniversary of significance to two individuals falls in July on very friggatriskaidekaesque day. That is unless one suffers memory loss on said day. Then and only then does the possibility of immanent doom increase.

    I trip over my tongue trying to say that word! No fear here. But it’s quite interesting the amount of folklore that surrounds Friday the 13th. Not to mention the number of people who believe every word of it.

    Ah yes… I know not why people suffer from such silly shenanigans, do you? Of course… all hell broke lose on Friday, March 13th, 2020… Maybe those who weren’t afraid then, have become so now!

    Nope as a matter of fact we both look forward to Friday the 13th as we consider it to be a lucky day for us.

    First off my wife always considered #13 as her lucky number. Second – after eleven years since our second so was born, our daughter was born on June 12, 1975. I know, that was the 12th not the 13th but she was supposed to be taken on the 13th (Cesarean section). You see, the doctor that was going do the delivery was moving out of town and they were having a going away party for him on the evening of the 12th and so he suggested that he might not be in shape to do a cesarean section on the 13th. So, we agreed –
    But there is also one more reason we consider Friday the 13th to be a lucky day for us,

    Everything went well on the 12th and our daughter was born (we didn’t know nor want to know the sex of the baby). Plus she became the 13th grandchild on my mother’s side and the 13th grandchild on my wife’s mother’s side as well.
    So to this day, we celebrate Friday the 13th with our daughter although we aren’t doing so today due to the Pandemic.
    Didn’t mean to ramble on but – no we are not afraid of Friday the 13th.

    I don’t seem to have any phobias. I’m so boring! Whenever I notice Friday the 13th is approaching, I get a bit excited, i.e., I think, OH! how interesting! Then there are the times, when I don’t notice it’s approaching, and have missed it altogether, like yesterday! thanks for reminding me!

    Nope, never have. It’s only religions that have turned it into the mutated nonsense we have today, and of course the movie industry just loves a good reason to stalk teenagers in the most gruesome way possible.
