Friday (the 13th) Happy Hour

Since it's Friday the 13th, today's secret ingredient is fear. If you're afraid of this particular date, you're suffering from Paraskavedekatriaphobia. We'll help you through it. Maybe you're afraid of being tickled by feathers, and have Pteronophobia. If this already has you uncomfortable, perhaps you've got a case of Sesquipedalophobia "“ fear of long words.

Fear is the jumping off point for this edition of Friday Happy Hour. Give us your obscure phobias, horror movie trivia, fancy facts about Halloween "“ whatever you've got. Go ahead and mingle. If Potophobia is what ails you, please don't let the adult beverage overtones keep you from participating (Potophobia is the fear of alcohol). Though people with Phobophobia "“ fear of phobias "“ may have a difficult time with this.

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
