Friday the 13th

Strangely enough, it did not register with me until just now that today is friday the 13th. To think I went the whole day without taking any precautions. Luckily I am not a friggatriskaidekaphobiac or a paraskevidekatriaphobiac, both words meaning the fear of friday the 13th.

By the way, on this date in 1888, Brazil became the last country in the Western world to abolish slavery. I guess the day wasn’t unlucky for the Brazilian slaves.
