Friday the 13th

Will it be unlucky? Obviously it will be for some, but any day can be unlucky for anybody so why have we a myth about a Friday that happens to fall on the thirteenth day of the month?

Urban Legends has more than a few good stories about the forboding #1 3, plus some surprising bad news about Friday. If you're a rational and sensible sort of person it probably won't even interest you, much less scare you. If you're already superstitious, though, then it might give you some good reasons to stay home.

Such nonsense doesn't begin to faze an old dog like me. Sure, I'll probably be home tomorrow but only because I haven't got anything better to do. And what's wrong with sleeping under the bed now and then? TGIF? We'll see....
