    I plan to be cautious.

    Do you have a pet superstition?

    It's already afternoon here and so far so good...

    I wouldn't walk under a ladder if I could avoid it, I think. 🙂 Other than that, just normal caution on slippery pavements.

    To be cautious is a good idea regardless of the date.

    First one and the sequel were so good, I watched them in the theaters around 1980.

    I traveled once on Friday 13th, and by "travel" I mean "flew", with a stop to get cheaper ticket to Amsterdam in order to see old Aznavour. Planes were late, all right, due fog (John Carpenter "The Fog" - shown around same time as first Fridays movies) but I survived.

    I remember a cynical sentence from Ian Fleming's "From Russia With Love":
    - I like to fly on Friday 13th: planes are empty because the majority is stupidly superstitious, and stewardesses are so kind to me, I always get extra dry martini!"

    Something like that,

    How was old Aznavour?

    Andy,

    I've always had bad things happen on Friday the 13th, also with the number 13 being very unlucky for me and loved ones!

    Goad,

    Had nothing to do with black cats, just the number 13!! Reason why you should always wash your cabbage before eating it. 😛

    Stay safe today!

    I seem to remember you having a photo of Hedberg as your avatar when I first arrived here. I used to think it was actually you 🙄
