No, I haven't developed a weird disorder nor am I speaking in tongues.
It's your word of the day.  It is the irrational fear of Friday the 13th (Happy Friday the 13th, by the way).
An alternative word is paraskevidekatriaphobia.
Your homework is to use it casually in a sentence today and not get slapped or arrested.  :)


  1. i have been sitting here for 10 minutes trying to come up with a sentence and the best i can do is:

    my friend Stephen (Standing Outside, Looking In) has friggatriskaidekaphobia.

    good one buddy!
    your friend,

  2. Try just saying it three times... sigh... :-)

  3. Kymber - thanks and I think that works except I don't know that Stephen is really afraid of much of anything. :)

    NFO - careful doing that around kids, that could get you in trouble.
