Please read that title in the spooky voice I wrote it in, thanks.
Here, we will share all of the freaky and unusual experiences we are sure to have today. If you think you haven't had one so far, I urge you to think again. I doubt it was just chance that your neighbors bathrobe fell open as he was getting the newspaper and you were driving by. Or that the box of poptarts you bought last week that you were surewere frosted (as all poptarts should be)...were nude this morning.
So far, all I got is a weird dream: I was competing in an intense white water rafting event (do they even have those) that carried the participants through little tunnels and stands...where there were people waiting to give us somewhat humiliating massages and beauty treatments.
When I was buying my lunch sandwich in the cafeteria this morning, I got a 2 for 1 deal. But they apparently have those deals every Friday, and I just didn't know since I typically don't get my lunch in the cafeteria - so, not really weird at all.
Statistically, I can't really give credence to the notion that the calendar date actually affects a person's daily experience, but reading this thread should still be entertaining.
BTW: Your dream sounds awesome - if they were offering enzyme peels, you should have taken them up on it.
Every year until I was about 12, I woke up on my birthday covered in poison ivy. I swear it was like my body had a little calendar and scheduled itself to be broken out in angry red itch patches.
My dream was creepy awesome. The creepy part was that the people giving out the beauty treatments and massages were sort of...mean. They were mocking us.
Correlation/causation fallacy - often made in regards to Friday the 13th discussions, so no biggie, really....
And the spa people were mocking you? At least they were offering beauty treatments - when I dreamt I was ziplining over EPCOT in a Bugs Bunny costume, all I got was people yelling "wrong park!" at me.
Three years ago or so, my husband and I were in my parents' hometown walking around on Friday the 13th. We got to a footbridge with low traffic, a bit eerie, and dark. As we stood there chatting a black cat ran past us on the bridge. Enter the jokes about Friday the 13th and cats crossing our path.
Then this man appears out of nowhere on a biked. He started talking to us about how his bike wasn't working because the handlebars were broken. (There was nothing wrong with the bike) The man was WASTED. He was rambling about doing a bunch of coke and booze and how we should be careful tonight.
Eventually he tried to ride across the bridge on his "broken" bike. He kept running in to the sides of the bridge and cussing up a storm. At the end the black cat ran in front of him and scared the **** out of him causing him to almost wipe out.
It was an interesting night.
In my part of the world, Friday the 13th is characterized by simple having bad luck.
So far it has spectacularly confirmed it with my boss acting like an emotionally imbalanced person, using some really innapropriate language towards me because of an incident in which I wasn't to blame.
Since this is a Leap Year it was actually yesterday that I had all the bad luck.
I was working at a summer camp one year and on Friday the 13th a crazy old woman showed up and killed most of my co-workers...
Better hope she doesn't see this or you're in for a sequel.
It's 12:26am. I've come home from a 14 hour day. Too tired to sleep (true). The fella is out like a light.
The Shining is on TV and I am freaking the EFF out.
Jack Nicholson is pretty much the balls in this.
*rubs belly over the area she assumes her IUD to reside*
Those are the worst. I've always had them a lot.
I've given birth to more cats, gremlins, full grown adults and unidentifiable objects than I can count.
I dreamt I lost a ton of weight and I was showing my husband how my pants were just falling off my body. I was very irritated when I realized it was just a dream. :/
Also, I got a text from my husband's BF (I've probably received 5 texts from him in the last decade). He told me to avoid the tollway where I normally jump on after dropping off the girls because he heard on the radio there was construction traffic going east. I responded with gratitude, but ended up going that way anyway because there was really no time for me to map out an alternate route.
There was no construction traffic and I flew to work. *scratches head*
Doubt any of this has anything to do with Friday the 13th, but I'm feeling very disoriented regardless.
eta: I just noticed I posted on the 13th frame. What do I win?!?!?
I dreamt about giant, unkillable squirrel/car hybrids.
I opted to do my mammogram on Monday rather than risk anything today.
I think you should win a 4-leaf clover!! That's the most good luck thing I can think of right now.
I had a weird dream today. I was walking into someone house and there were hundreds of little kittens different sizes. They were everywhere I couldn’t walk not stepping on them.
I washed my car today, accidentally left the mats on the hooks at the car wash, went back and they were gone.
Friday the 13th strikes again! Not freaky or unusual, but it sucks. Bad luck and all. :P
Who would steal someone elses mats? Weirdos.
