Friday the 13th and other silly things......

I'm not superstitous, in the least.  The closest I get to a superstition is that people do tend to get a bit goofy during the full moon (I've seen it happen more times than I can count when I worked retail.)  So that said and prefaced to those of you who are indeed superstitious, you now know the angle I'll be taking in this blog!  My question is this, who decided Friday the 13th is an UNlucky day?  I get it that some people think 13 is an unlucky number.  I have been in buildings that "skip" the 13th floor and pleanty of other nonsense about the number 13.   But really?  Why isn't every 13th unlucky by those standards?  Why single out poor Friday?  Friday, the end of most peoples work week, the end of the school week, the day that ushers in the weekend!  I mean really, let's think about this for a moment.  I would dread it a lot more if it were Monday the 13th.  Doesn't that sound scarier?  Hey, if your Friday is awful, who cares it is the weekend next.  You are done and can relax.  But to have a bad Monday, oh Heaven help me!  A bad Monday means there are still 4 more days left of the week that you have to stumble through.  I could care less about Friday the 13th.  It's just another day as far as I'm concerned.  But if ever the theory extends to a Monday, I might be more hesitant about taking part in THAT day.  Lesson to be learned:  Mondays are waaaaaay scarier than Fridays!  :0)
