Paraskevidekatriaphobia

Today is Friday the Thirteenth. There are those who cling to primitive superstitions, and believe the combination of day and date is unlucky. (Paraskevidekatriaphobia, as opposed to the more general fear of the number thirteen, triskaidekaphobia. See what a useless font of knowledge this journal is?) As a modern woman, I shun such unscientific fears. Carpe diem!

On the other hand, there is no shame in a restorative nap. If that nap lasts all day, it is but a happy coincidence that it falls on such a day.

Ha! Friday the 13th has always been my LUCKY day! All that luck has to go somewhere doesn't it? I agree with the Spanish. MONDAY the 13th is a bad day. Fridays are good. Mondays...especially Monday mornings...BAD.
