Friday the 13th

I'm squeaking this one in. This week's Blogfire blog carnival is about Friday the 13th. It's fitting that I'm visiting family this week, sitting in my mother's living room while doing this post.

Friday the 13th was my brother's lucky day. That may seem odd given the superstition surrounding the day - but he was born on Friday the 13th (in November 1981 specifically). 13 was his lucky number!

My brother has been gone 12 years this summer - but I always think of him on this day and laugh at the though of it being anything to worry about:

Triskaidekaphobia - the fear of the number 13
Paraskevidekatriaphobia - the fear of Friday the 13th
