The Friday the 13th of all Friday the 13th's
« on: July 12, 2012, 07:38:04 PM »
Or "Third time's the charm"

July 13, 2012 is Friday, but not just any Friday.  You may not have heard, but this one is rather special.  Allow me to list what makes it special.
  • It's Friday the 13th (that itself makes it special)
  • It's the 3rd Friday the 13th of 2012.  Most years only have one or two Friday the 13th.  This year has three, and this one is the third.
  • Each Friday the 13th in 2012 is exactly 13 weeks apart.  Yep, 13.  Count 'em.
Just thought I'd share.

Nothing special about Friday the 13ths for me. In fact, this Friday the 13th has been going pretty good for me thus far. :D

I think I crossed a black cat once on the 13th.

Forgot what day it was until I looked at the paper just a few minutes ago. Been a great day so far!

A black cat crosses my path on a regular basis (we own it) and the only thing bad that's really come from that is that said cat has gotten kind of fat over time. :P

Weird! I just opened this thread and at that moment my son accidentally stepped on the cat, and he let out a loud screech.

And it's not even Friday the 13th anymore.

Who screeched?  Your son or the cat?

Friday the 13th was one of the quickest, easiest closes I've had all year, and that was our new manager's first true solo close.

I could start a book with that line.  Maybe I will.

I caught a hit and run driver that sideswiped my dad's car outside. I heard the crash followed by the car alarm, bolted outside, got in my hearse and chased his ass. Got his license plate and called the cops. It was a good day!

LOL, I can just imagine the driver of that car:  "Oh man, can't believe I hit a car.  Gotta get outta here, it's Friday the 13th, something evil is happening!  Oh God, there's a hearse chasing me!  ...agggghhhh!!!!"  :P

Glad you caught him, Alieo.
