If you want to howl at a full moon on Friday the 13th, you'd better do it this Friday.

Is bad luck on the horizon?  Will strange things occur Friday night?  Probably not, but, approximately 20 million Americans suffer mild to severe anxiety or change their activities--performing rituals before leaving the house, calling in sick to work, or postponing flights or major purchases on Friday the 13th.

Am I one of them?  Heck no...(Have I just vexed myself? hA!)
