I'm Lucky in Kentucky!
We all think we have lucky numbers. If we didn't there would be no Las Vegas. I grew up in a house with the number of 203. Somehow that stuck to me. I don't think it was particularly lucky...but what counted was that I believed it to be.
Later when I bought my first sports car (an Alfa Romeo Spyder)I was at the Madison County court house in the license office begging for any plate that might have a 203 on it. The lady didn't think I was crazy and dug through piles of tags till she found the perfect one for me.
Excitedly she handed me MYT-203. Everyone waiting patiently and impatiently in the line behind me applauded! It was easy for me to remember. It sounded like mighty 203! I was sooooooo lucky.
Later, I bought another car that set off another court house search. This time I came up with 203-DXZ. I put that on a cute silver blue Toyota MR2.
Both cars were extremely lucky and were never in an accident. The Alfa made it through 7 years and 5 for the MR2. Had lots of fun in those cars!
The car I am driving right now I have no idea what the tag number is and I have driven it 4 years. How sad is that? If I take 203 and add the numbers together I get a 5. I have never used that as a lucky or unlucky number.
Catherine Meyer's post on It's an unlucky number - I can't buy it! got me thinking. Maybe it's all just a state of mind where we all feel comfort. It's gives us something familiar in a sea of numbers and uncertain times. We can't even see clients as crazy because we do it too in some form or fashion. It can give them an out when they just can't come up with a good reason to not like a house.
Don't laugh...YOU KNOW YOUR LUCKY NUMBER! You lucky monkey!
