Why is the lucky number 13 so unlucky?
"No, no my good friend, you first."
"No, no, age before beauty. You go."
That the number 13 is just one too many numbers past the number 12, said to be the number of perfection, twelve months to a year, twelve signs of the zodiac.
All in all, I'd hate to see the corner bakery stop doling out their "Baker's Dozen." That lucky extra one which makes 13. It hits the spot.
