Frigga Fobia

Cynopsis reminded me that today is a rough one for folks with Triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13), or even worse Friggatriskaidekaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th).

She failed to mention these other less-well known fears:

Cinefriggatriskaidekaphobia – The fear that New Line will release yet another slasher film starring Jason in a hockey mask.

TGIFriggatriskaidekaphobia – The fear that eating at a franchise sports bar 13 times will result in food poisoning.

ThorNotFriggatriskaideka-n-sleepaphobia – Fear of spending all day Thursday the 13th thinking it is Friday the 13th, and then be two hours late for work the next day because you slept in.

MissaFriggatriskaidekaphobia – the unreasonable fear that you will not know that it is Friday the 13th and feel guilty for the rest of the year for missing out on some good phobia time.

So if you see someone cowering in a corner, be kind. Oh, and balance out the universe by giving a black cat some love.

Just my thoughts,
