Paraskevidekatriaphobia. A morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th.
Hope no school kid gets hit with this at a Spelling Bee!

Word dissection:
paraskevi = Greek word for Friday
dekatria = Greek word for the number 13
Makes you glad to know good ole greek-language whippin' Flubberwinkle, doesn't it?

Darn! If I knew this malady existed, I would have an excuse NOT to come into work today! I just found out myself: How Friday the 13th Works.
Isn't the Internet awesome? Got a question? Just google it!
