Guest Blogger – SamCat: Hidin’ from Friday 13!!!!!

I heard my mom, my upright Sakura talking to my Daddy Braddy about a friend of hers who has a phobia about Friday the 13th – triskadekaphobia…man, that’s a mouthful with change left over!

They got into a discussion about it and mom broke down the Greek words that formed it.  My upright Sakura apparently has studied several languages including yogurt language (I loves me some strawberry greek yogurt) and the beer language – he brew.

But anyway, they also talked about some mean ugly movies with that name too – Friday 13th.  I think there’s a zillion of them.  That’s scary that people would want to watch such ugly movies, don’t you think?

But it made me nervous thinking of a day that just because of its name is bad luck.  I’ve had enough bad luck in my short life without making a special day for it.  Mom was doing laundry and I snuck into the room for that and saw a basket of upright clothing in a basket.  I didn’t think twice – I jumped up and burrowed to the bottom.  I was going to hide from Friday 13.

My upright Sakura came in and saw me.  She pulled me out and snuggled me up close.  “Whatsa matter SamCat? Huh?  Scared?”  and I nuzzled up close feeling all safe.  She says, “I know Daddy Braddy and I were talking about some scary things, but really, Friday 13 is just another day, like Friday 12.  And besides, Friday 13 is a lucky good day – it is the day you came home with me.”

I snuggled closer and began to purr.  I wanted her to know that I wasn’t scared anymore.  Friday 13 was a lucky day for me because my upright Sakura came and rescued me and asked me if I wanted to come home with her.  So after listening to her talk yogurt talk to Daddy Braddy, I guess I have changed to a triskadekaphile!  Any day is what you make it, regardless of the date.  Everyday now is special for me.  And I’ll bet if you think about it really hard, besides those bad days, you have some good ones too!

I’ll talk to you later.  I’m off to play with a new catnip mouse!!!

    About time you spoke for yourself, SamCat. You remind me of someone I know. I had no idea ‘his’ face was more pointy than yours, otherwise, you could be related—no, no I said related, not twins… How is that a bad thing? Come on over. We could have tea. Okay. Or something.

    You are one lucky cat and you can talk like the Cat in Dear Kitty.

    I’m glad you found your upright and feel safe, SamCat. There’s nothing scary about a day or date – in Spain it’s Tuesday 13th that’s considered bad. Before you ask, I’ve no idea why!

      Hi Clowie! it is so good to meet you. My upright has spoken many times about you. 😊 And you are right, just a date doesn’t make it bad. Except for the time I pulled the cloth and all the dishes off the table, I’ve had nothing but good days here! I’ll ask upright Sakura about the Tuesday. She knows all kinds of stuff. I hope you have a swell day! Hugs 💖 SamCat

        I bet it made a terrible noise when you pulled the cloth and dishes from the table!

          It just about scared me into next week! I was only seeing if when I jumped up on the table, if I would slide, like I see those uprights who that “surf” thing. But now I suppose it was a bad thing to do. Nothing broke but it was a mess.
