There’s a serious problem out there that most people don’t like to talk about in public. There’s no way to put a nice face on it, but there are millions of sufferers, all of whom need our prayers on this day in particular.

This post is dedicated to the many ailing souls out there who will not leave their houses, refuse to drive cars, and abstain from many innocuous activities because of a chance alignment of the sixth day of the week and the 13th day of the month.

It’s hard for me to admit. Oh man…I’m getting teary-eyed as I write. But yes, I too suffer from that horrible malady known in certain circles as…


Not to worry. I’ve consulted a friend, and there is hope. Just proceed to the link immediately below for details.

Imagine a life free of debilitating phobias


Imagine What Your Life Would Be Like Without It…

Now, I realize that paraskavedekatriaphobics are not the only ones with problems out there. So in the spirit of Political Correctness — and in heart-felt, deep, honest, really really real consideration of our phobic brethren, we shall pause for a moment of reflective silence in respect for the following, and also the many others who live in fear every day:

The Aerophobes — those afraid of swallowing air

The Arachibutyrophobes — those afraid of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth

The Kathisophobes — those afraid of sitting down

The Nephophobes — those who fear clouds

The Levophobes — those who fear things on the left side of the body

The Geniophobes — those afraid of chins

The Blennophobes — those who fear slime

The Aulophobes — those who fear flutes

The Kinetophobes — those who fear any kind of motion

The Panophobes — those who fear damn near everything

and my personal favorite:

The Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobes — those afraid of long words.

May our prayers aid our fear-stricken brothers on this dark and dangerous day.

In conclusion, all I can say is:

Be very afraid
