A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia.
Didn't know they were different....

Ifs funny cus typically Friday the 13th is associated with bad luck, but for my mom and I it was always a day of GOOD luck. I passed a difficult exam for college most people failed on that date, I got a good job I held on to for 4 years on that date, and lots of other things I forgot about.

Cant wait until the next Friday the 13th.

Haha, I didn't even know the date yesterday. But I was out on the porch last night enjoying the full moon and the Cayotes were goin' nuts. I couldn't believe it because its been 2 years since i've heard that many. Back in the 90'* they were everywhere here and this was a nightly occurence. One day when I was walking home from school I ran into one. They are kinda big.

A friend of mine shot one on his land. It was a good distance away but there was no mistaking it for a regular dog. It was kinda scary. He shot the dog and it ran off, they tried to go find him to finish him off but couldn't find him. We know he hit the dog cuz there was blood where he had been. He said they had been messing with his chickens, other birds he has and was coming up around his house.

They are big. If you don't hit em right they may survive. But in less than a week they will slow down and may be easier to find and kill.
