DG's forgot again

Friday the 13th tomorrow and there is a special name for it that if DG remembers to post- He can put the name to it.

This is the occasion for a 50+ ride.

Any ride will do but if you are doing it right- it is 13 miles up a 13% slope and eating 13 pieces of pie en route.

Or any mutiples thereof.

You can say that again. I have a fear of forgetting the name of my phobia. Is that forgetaphobiaphobia?

Just for the record, paraskavedekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th.

I used to think Friday the 13th was a lucky day for me because I had the first date with my future wife on Friday the 13th. Once she became my ex, I stopped thinking that.
