What's so lucky about the number seven??

          I've never been a true believer in luck.  Fate, maybe; destiny, absolutely!  But no matter what you do, luck isn't responsible.

     They say the number seven is lucky.  I have no idea what they base it on.  Nothing can be divided by that number, donuts, six packs of soda, a carton of eggs... it's a very complicated number, yet so many people put stock in it.

     Then in the same token, the number thirteen is supposedly unlucky. I'm not sure why, but somehow it got a bad wrap.  In fact, some buildings skip the thirteenth floor and move right to fourteen, because of superstitions.  But wouldn't that still make it the thirteenth floor, regardless of what you call it?? You know, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck...

     Of course I do believe in favorite numbers.  Mine happens to be five.  The amazing thing about five is it's always half way to a perfect ten, and if you can make it half way, you're home free.  The glass half full thing... half of anything is as good as all of it, because the hard part is out of the way.

     This year, 2015, is surely going to be a good one; I just know it has to be, because there's a five in the number.  The last time that happened it was 2005.  which was ten years ago, and five is half of a perfect ten... see a pattern?? Then the last time before that was 1995, and new years day that year my daughter Lindsay was born.  Five is clearly a great number.

     You can believe in luck, but at the end of the day it's fate that will guide us, and the writing is already in the sand.  However, that doesn't mean we can't have favorites, and I know 2015 will undoubtedly be mine.

Have a great day!!

  1. Okay, 13 , Hello? Baker's Dozen; an extra donut! :)

    My favorite number is 17. It was mt jersey number when I played hockey when I was a kid.Our uniforms were green too. Maybe that's where green became my favorite color more than because it's my eye color. My eyes didn't change to green until I was i high school.

    Anyway, my comment as about 5. I met David in 2005. In 1995 I produced the biggest project of my Cable TV career. You're reasoning is sound. This IS going to be a great year! :D


Please post a comment, I would love to hear from you. :)
