what's the word of the day.. i wondered.

sO.. naturally, i looked it up.


the **fear** of the number 13.

i sO don't have it.. i've been in elevators, with NO number 13.. i don't get it.. people do some weird stuff in the name of superstition.. whatever.

sO.. i found this to be interesting.. in connection with the "word of the day"..

A 1913 piece described a minister who offered to marry free of charge any couple willing to take the matrimonial plunge on Friday the 13th:


Pastor's Offer to Any Young Couple
Willing to Take the Chance.

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y., June 10 — Any young couple bent on matrimony may have the ceremony performed free next Friday by applying to the Rev. Charles H. Reynolds, pastor of the North Congregational Church.

Mr. Reynolds does not believe that Friday is unlucky, nor that Friday, June 13, 1913, is unlucky, and therefore he offers to tie the knot free of charge for any young couple who comes to him on that day.

you can find the rest of the article HERE.. enjoy.. if you dare. heh heh.
