That freaky day is finally here. Only three days during this
year will be Friday 13th (January, April and July) and then we’ll
have some peace until 2015.
Since ancient times 13 has been an unlucky number. At age 13
kids become teenagers and what can be worse than going into that horrible time
were we use braces! There are pimples all over and there’s a party of hormones
But at OfficeList we like to go against the odds and we’ll
take it as a lucky number.
Why? Here are some hints.
- Alex Rodriguez began wearing the number 13 upon
joining the New York Yankees
- Dan Marino, known for passing the 3rd most yards
in NFL history, wore the number 13.
- Shaquille O'Neal wore No. 13 in 1996
- The Thirteenth
Amendment to the United States Constitution officially outlaws slavery
and involuntary servitude.
- American founding father Benjamin Franklin wrote
his famous aphorism, "Everything appears to promise that it will last; but
in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes,"
The day is just starting, but we’ll do as Italians, who
consider 13 a lucky number.
Have a great Friday 13!
