Do any of you remember Pogo? Pogo was a philosophical possum and a wonderful comic strip.
I have to admit that as a child, I never did understand the political and social humor dished out every week.
Actually, I’m not sure I’d understand them today.
But one quip of humor did catch my fancy back then.
It was a strip addressing an irrational fear that grips the minds of the irrational once a month. Pogo’s superstitious friend Churchey (the mud turtle) warned his friends, “Oh no! Friday the 13th falls on a Wednesday this month!”
It would seem that Friday the 13th was an unlucky day, no matter what day of the week it fell on.
It is prophetic that in a presidential election year, our first month’s 13th day falls on a Friday.
I’m not sure if this is any less lucky than a Wednesday, but historically it’s Friday the 13ths that worry most people.
Later this year, two more months (April and July) will also host Friday the 13th on a Friday.
