A few months ago, I commented on paraskevidekatriaphobia, that is, fear of Friday the 13th. I neglected to say whether or not I am one who is afflicted with this fear. I am not. And that’s a good thing, because yesterday we moved into our new abode.
I also do not suffer from a related disorder: triskaidekaphobia, which is fear of the number 13. That also is a good thing, because there are thirteen steps between the first and second floors of our house.
