Supernatural Advisory #044: The Number Thirteen

Avoid all association with the number thirteen or unfortunate circumstances may follow.

CONTEXT

Triskaidekaphobia, the fear of the number held thirteen, is the rightly-held belief in a commonly-observed pattern linked to a dangerous number. One should avoid being the thirteenth guest at any gathering, or they will certainly die within the year. Likewise, one should avoid entering the thirteenth floor of any building that has one.

The fourteenth floor is perfectly safe, even in buildings that lack a thirteenth floor.

FIELD NOTES

lyrics

Welcome back
Put me on the thirteenth floor
Yes the one that isn’t here
A missing button in a box
Distance is to disappear

Thirteen steps up the gallows stairs
The thirteenth guest will die in the year
Thirteen knots in a hangman’s noose
Thirteen cards all share the same suit
Thirteen feet which the guillotine falls
Thirteen witches in a coven enthrall
Thirteen letters in your name
You’re bound to have devil’s luck

Are you a triskaidekaphobiac?
Just another heart attack

Welcome back
Just a number just a day
A baker’s dozen nothing more
A missing button in a box
Seals the elevator door

Welcome back
Fourteenth floor masquerade
I return to face my fear
A missing button in a box
Reappears

Are you ever coming back?
