Friday Night Cats Blogging: Paraskevidekatriaphobia

Paraskevidekatriaphobia, the irrational and morbid fear that something really, really, but really bad is going to happen when the calendar turns to Friday the 13th.
Irrational? But there is a greater fear about a more definite and immediate threat of getting your head ‘sploded by cats. And there’s no name for that yet.

Friday 13 Tito and Maz

Even Miss Jenny was excluded from their conversation… Whatever, man… ‘Spect the ‘stache…

        1. You triggered some good memories. I got to watch Nolan Ryan pitch for the Angels. I also got to watch The Goose (Gossage) pitch for the Padres. Watching The Goose pitch was an amazing thing. I saw batters visibly flinch when he pitched. What a joy.

          By watching, I’m referring to actually being in the stadium to see the game.
