Yes, this year you have three times to fear Friday the 13th, called Friggatriskaidekaphobiafriggatriskaidekaphobiaand also called/referred to as triskaidekaphobia triskaidekaphobiathat is translated as the fear of the number 13.
What days do you need to be weary of? Well, this Friday is January 13th then the second week in April is our second “Friday the 13th” and the last 2012 “Friday the 13th” is in July… Watch out for black cats and broken mirrors people!
Triskaidekaphobiathat THIS is a REAL Psychological Disorders phobia that gets made fun of all the time without anyone batting an eye… Why is that? Why is it okay to make fun of people with phobias likeFriggatriskaidekaphobia that affect a great many people? I do not have a fear of Friday the 13th, rather my fear gets made fun of all the time. What does Chato Stewart fear most? It’s the Fear Of Balloons = Globophobia. Check out The Etymology of Globophobia – Fear of Balloons.
Please don’t send me any balloon gift baskets to cheer me up…AGAIN. Thanks Rob for that dozen balloons. i’m still poppin’ xanax over that gift.
