Triple Five

My dad drove a cab when I was in high school. The cab you see in the photo is one of the cabs he owned after it had lost its use as a taxi. I inherited that cab, it's call number: 555.

For some reason, I have had it in my head lately that my new lucky number is five. Triple 5 to be exact. So, when I was setting out to sell my old car, worth about $700 or so, I thought to myself I would start high but settle at $555. Sure enough, I got what I had decided to settle for: $555. I headed straight for 7-11 to buy me a $5 lotto ticket. A little over half way through scratching the ticket I felt it was all a sham. Until alas, I scratched a win double the prize symbol! I won $40 bucks. Ok, no big deal your saying. But get this! I get an email forwarded from my girlfriend's dad saying that this month happens to have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays, 5 - 5 - 5!! It's the first time that has happened in 823 years!

I guess what I mean to say is, I'm feeling lucky. If you have any ideas for things I can press my luck with, in 5s of course, let me know immediately!! Come on! Big Bucks, Big Bucks, No Whammys......
