Accident Prone Knitter

Here you will find musings about knitting, home renovation, travelling, sports and the myriad of things I delight in. "Out into the brimming, sun bathed world I sped"

Can I go home now?

Paraskavedekatriaphobia (bonus points if you can pronounce it), or better known as The Fear of Friday the 13th.

I really don't have any phobias, but when one of my friends experienced car troubles this morning and then told me it was Friday the 13th - bacause duh, I hadn't realized it yet, I asked "Why in the world did I get out of bed this morning?" (I paraphrased - a little)

If anybody orders DUCK off the menu at dinner tonight, you know I'm diving under the table. I'm going to a game where there are warnings of "loose pucks may enter the stands."

Heavy sigh.

Pronouncing it isn't going to happen.

I love today!!!

It's a Holiday, just as good as any we've got going already even. *L*

Be safe and remember that monsters live under the table so take a blankey and a flashlight with you. ;)

For as hideously superstitious as I am (I look for meaning in license plates, for crying out loud) Friday the 13th means nothing to me.

I hope you got through the day unskathed. My Mom was born on Friday the 13th and always says that Saturday the 14th is her bad day. LOL!
