Friggatriskaidekaphobic

Friggatriskaidekaphobia
One of the things that few people know about me (until now) is that I'm a bit friggatriskaidekaphobic.  For those that don't know, that means I have a fear of Friday the 13th.

It isn't an irrational, overpowering fear, but more of a day-long suspicion and worry that something very bad is going to happen.

If anything I'm more superstitious and one of the worst days of my life occurred on a Friday the 13th.  That one day shaped my life more than I think any other, but I will admit that if not for that horrible day and the subsequent years I wouldn't have had gone down the path required to bring me her to Boise and my wife Carolyn.

Still doesn't make me feel much better about Friday the 13ths...

.....maybe I'll go into it tomorrow when I'm not so worried about jinxing myself.
