For some time now, I have been hearing John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry talk about three being a magic number on their show, No Agenda. Well, for the most part I kept it to myself. However, when I finally spoke up about it, it appeared that three really is a magic number. Coincidence? I think not!
On Friday, July 30, I decided to have fun with this and started to tell my kids about how three is a magic number. This revelation turned into a scavenger hunt for three. We saw three objects everywhere. Our coffee table has three decorative candles. The television has three speakers (left, right, and center.) We have candle holders in the wall that have three candles. We have three pictures on one wall of our three children. We have three children. Their are ages turn out to be multiples of three: 3 × 2, 3 × 3, and 3 × 4. That’s 6, 9, and 12.
We didn’t give it much thought after a while. But the big shocker came the following day when my oldest son did something he doesn’t usually do. He turned on the news. Within three minutes of turning on the news, the news anchor announced the winning number to The Daily Three lottery. Surprisingly, it was 3-3-3! Chills came through our spine, and my son was like “Three is really a magic number.”
Of course, my answer was, “I told you so.”
