Friday the....


As you can see I am pretty laid back....
not worried at all....

even though today is....


Some people are afraid of this day....
they are called
 Paraskevidekatriaphobics --
which means people afflicted 
with a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th.

I am NOT one of them....
   
Did you know....
Many buildings and skyscrapers do not have a 13th floor.  

Many people will not allow 13 people at the table.
If there is exactly 13 people present, 
a second table is set up.     

Skippers would not go out to sea with a crew of 12. 
Including the captain, that made 13 people.

Like any other special or wacky day, 
I encourage you to have fun with it. 
Don't cower in your room in fear of this day.
 You'd miss all of the fun and excitement!


Also....

Have a funtastic weekend,
my friends!

Later -- Remington --
I think this is MY lucky day....
-- out!

Madi and Mom said...

Great catitude Rem...Mom says we make our own luck!! We love that up close pic of you. MOL you are right about fitting into a bag...that was funny.

Mom says if your Mom needs help with to holler. Mom thinks the culprit for her was her old Internet Explorer. Chrome is 100% faster for sure. But as long as you don't have any issues stay where you are.
Hugs Madi and Mom

All4UrPet said...

Haha thanks for pointing out all kinds of cool Friday the 13th stuff... one of my friends is a paraskevidekatriaphobic... I told her that they have a name for her... she wasn't too pleased, and claimed that it is not an "irrational" fear. I hope you keep your laid back composure for the whole day and that you too have a very happy Friday the 13th :)

SquirrelQueen said...

With two black cats who cross my path many times each day I have no fear of any superstitions. Fear of tripping over a cat, now that's a different matter.

Happy Weekend!

Whiskers is afraid of this day. She told me something about avoiding black cats as I go on my walks. I have never seen a black cat in my life though! Good thing that black dogs are good luck. Well, you, in particular ;)

Tessa the Maltese said...

That is some info bout Friday the 13th there Rem!

I agrees with you, Mom and I just LOVE Friday the 13th! Yep, good things happen on that day!

Moms glasses frames were broken and when she took them in the man told here they were out of warranty but it seemed to him it was a badly make frame and they will order a new one, no charge! Then we went to KFC to get grilled chicken, they only had half of what we ordered so they gave us a coupon for a FREE bucket on another day!

woos, Tessa

My mom likes the number 13 and always has. She thinks it is funny to hear people talk about being scared of Friday the 13th.
