Happy Friday News Viewers — and it’s not just any Friday, it’s Friday the 13th. . . What does that mean? It means that anything unlucky that happens to us today is unlucky because of the date. If it were Friday the 14th and we happened to be unlucky, clearly it’s all our fault. But today, we’re off the hook……I know, I know. It makes no sense. But after living through this past week, I think the notion of a past, a future or any day of any month making sense actually never really made sense.
Given that today has been called an unlucky day simply because it’s a Friday and it’s the 13th day, we can safely say that whatever happens, whatever we do is governed by the forces of date and time, not by human agency. So it doesn’t really matter what we do, right? Might as well freely chat about whatever comes up, knowing that an unlucky day or a lucky day is out of our control, so we might as well let fly. That’s free chat, with only one rule whatever the day, the “don’t be an ass” rule……so, this Friday the 13th, whatcha got?
