Today was a Day of Coincidence

Is it mere coincidence, or are the stars aligned such that TODAY I should buy a lottery ticket, bet on ‘Stumbled’ in the 9th and eat that piece of cake that has passed the ‘Best Before’ date?

Today is indeed an auspicious day because of the number 15203. I just realized that today The Car Guy and I have been married 15203 days AND at sometime today my blog was viewed for the 15203rd time!

In comparison to other digital milestones, I suppose this isn’t much. But imagine what a feat it would be if each of those views was equivalent to a visitor stopping by for coffee each and every day of my married life!

Of course, coincidences happen all the time. Most of them go unnoticed. But here are a few more for you to consider:

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.
– Erma Bombeck –

Dressing up is inevitably a substitute for good ideas. It is no coincidence that technically inept business types are known as ‘suits’.
– Paul Graham –

It’s no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase “As pretty as an airport” appear.
– Douglas Adams –

The sixties were when hallucinogenic drugs were really, really big. And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we had the type of shows we had then, like The Flying Nun.
– Ellen DeGeneres –

A child can go only so far in life without potty training. It is not mere coincidence that six of the last seven presidents were potty trained, not to mention nearly half of the nation’s state legislators.
– Dave Barry-

    I say, yes! Lady Luck is probably smiling on you, so you should buy a lotto ticket!*


    • Thank you Nancy. That is very nice of you to say. I have been to your blog and you say things very perfectly yourself!


  2. E.C. says

    Wow, that’s alot of days and alot of visits. Yep, a lottery ticket could prove quite profitable.
    Just think, If that many folks were dropping by your home for coffee, you could open an award winning cafe, coffee and a smile. 🙂
    Those are some fun tid-bits of info, thanks for sharing. lol


    • Hi EC – the funny part is that I don’t drink coffee. I don’t even know how to make a cup of it! But my husband does, which could be one reason I married him!


  3. Hi,
    That is amazing, what are the odds of that happening, I would differently go out and try your luck, with a ticket you just never know. 🙂


  4. Thanks for that laugh.Wow, what are the odds?! Loved the quotes, made me giggle. Douglas Adams! Oh, it’s been some time since I’ve read Hitchhiker’s Guide!
