Cecil’s Column. Fear of the number 13 is very old and real.
I don’t like the number 13. I wouldn’t live on the thirteenth floor of a building. I wouldn’t visit a doctor or dentist that had offices on the thirteenth floor. I do go to work on Friday the 13th. But, don’t like traveling any great distance on Friday the 13th. If possible, I’d reschedule a trip for another day.
I’m not pathological about it. If my boss sends me on a plane for a computer conference, then I’ll go on the 13th. But, will buy travel insurance and say a few prayers.
How about you? Fess up.
WTF are we going to do about 2013? Me? I will always refer to it as 2013. Never as the year 13. Anyway 2013 isn’t evenly divided by 13. That’s a relief.
