Writer's Block: Rare Condition

Do you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia or know anyone who does?
I  don't have a strong fear of Friday the 13th, but I have a little more respect than I used to.

One Friday the 13th many years ago was going particularly well. Nothing bad happened at all, and a few things went positively well. I remarked to several people that there was clearly nothing to this Friday the 13th business, since I hadn't had a shred of bad luck all day.

When I got home that night there was a raccoon in my bedroom.


I guess it was dumb to act like you didn't know what a racoon was. If I know what a kiwi is, someone in New Zealand would know what a raccoon is. Apologies for that.

Anyway, I just consider it a nuisance for a wild animal to get into the house. Or bad luck, if you will.
No, it's okay.

...I didn't expect too many Americans to know what a kiwi is either. :)
