Here come the double 13s

Lucky

I’m quite sure nobody’s mentioned this, but today is the first of a series of twelve dates this year with a double 13 in them. Today is 1/13/13, and if you have triskaidekaphobia, well, you’d better get over it for this year. I’ve speculated that this hasn’t helped the Cubs very much over the past half-century, but perhaps this year will be different. Maybe they’ll cancel each other out or something.

The true test of this, if you believe in such things, will come in September, and again in December. Then, for the only two times in our lifetimes, we’ll have a Friday the 13th on a year that ends in a 13. The world somehow lived through all previous centuries where this happened, so I guess we’ll get through this, too. It should be interesting, though.
