Friday the 13th Thoughts of Dr. TVBoogie

And so it is Friday the 13th.  Bah, humbug.  Why is it considered unlucky?  I for one can’t remember anything really bad happening on this day; and the ones I do remember are more from good luck than bad: I once met a new love on this date at a swinging night club; I once got revenge on an ass-whole of a boss who was "let-go" on a Friday the 13th and so I got to watch him being escorted out the door by a security guard; and then there have been those numerous three and four dollar scratch-off lottery ticket winnings on this day.  Yes, Friday the 13th is a great day for me, unlike those pseudo Christians who give it a negative meaning based on a flawed Solar Calendar that suggest Jesus died on a Friday and then woke up late for work on a Monday.  Highly unlikely, still, something to believe in.

The other Christian superstition that scares folks about this glorious day has something to do with having 13 mouths to feed at a supper: one will certainly be a psycho murderer named Judas Iscariot... or Jason.  Maybe that’s where the old English superstition not to invite 13 guest to dinner because one will die before the year is out, got started? — not to mention there will be one odd person left out of a conversation unless the dinner happens to be hosted by... I don't know, say: SATAN.  Speaking of which,  a Devil's Dozen used by witches has 13 as opposed to 12 as a parody of the 12 disciples of Jesus (guilty as charged).

Well, those are my thoughts on this beautiful Friday the 13th.  Enjoy yours, Peace on Earth and good luck to you and yours...
