Paraskevidekatriaphobia: Fear of Friday the 13th.

The word "paraskevidekatriaphobia" was devised by Dr. Donald Dossey who told his patients that "when you learn to pronounce it, you're cured!"

Fear of Parisian cats?
(Une Vie de Chat is a lovely movie, btw)

No, it's fear of Friday the 13th. Superstitious sailors never set sail on Black Friday.

I Googled images for 'Une Vie de Chat' - the cartoons look very vibrant and exciting - Have you seen the movie?

Kate said...

Yes. I have. It's rather beautiful.

Of course you've seen it, how else would you know it's a lovely movie LOL - Jeez, man, I'm getting old and doddery.
