A Number Trumps Lumber!

The cat has done a post on luck, telling all humans it is as made up as that plastic duck. But humans still have their lucky numbers out there. They think they are something rare. Not really though. Sorry to burst your bubble, not really, at your show.

I have such luck,
I'll win more than a buck.
Just play this number oh so rare.
It is never used anywhere.

7 billion humans around,
And only for me luck is found.
This number is my lucky one.
I will win when done.

Pffft says the cat.
Pfffft to all of that.
Wow, a magic number.
Might as well say you have magic lumber.

Hmm, if drunk enough that could work.
Ahh, the gutter mind perk.
Now back on task,
As in the numbers we bask.

But you are wrong.
I heard it in a song.
It is my birthday.
Luck will come my way.

Pffft once more.
Pffft to any lore.
Pfffft to you.
Pffft to your made up word too.

Millions of others have your birthday.
Millions of others heard the song at their bay.
Millions of others have millions of reasons more,
For the number bringing luck at their shore.

Lucky numbers sure do get around.
Damn millions of them are found.
No wonder everyone wins the jackpot.
No wonder everyone never works a lot.

Lucky numbers are just so grand.
They give all a helping hand.
Oh wait! The cat is mistaken,
Some other number came out when the lottery ball was shaken.

Damn, if only it was my lucky number.
Then in bed I could slumber.
It sure is my wish.
Lucky numbers are about as magical as a half eaten fish.

Saying a number is lucky is the same as saying 13 is bad luck. Just a way for humans to pass the buck. Luck is a made up word and lucky numbers are just as absurd. Now numbers can mean something to each, as 24 is sure here at our beach. But that is it. Numbers are no more lucky than spit. There is my lucky number sass, I'll now wiggle away my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    Hello Cat on the kitty cat mat!
    Is Suza number one or is it Hank?

    Or did the Ghost play another trick on me
    In the place to be?
    Lots of questions from The Goo
    Who lost his blue suede shoe
    And raised you a Scooby Doo!

  2. My parents would religiously box their house number in the lottery two times a week thinking they were gonna win the big bucks. Even as my Dad was wheeled into open heart surgery he told my Mom, "don't forget to box our house number". Uh yea, never worked out for them 'cause they lost their house in foreclosure and lost all their money to their gambling addiction.

  17. I don't have a lucky number. I don't really believe in good luck or bad luck though sometimes it seems like some people have good things happen while others have bad things. Luck? Maybe. Choices? Maybe.

    1. It all does come back to choice and maybe timing

  22. It's kind of like trying to pick a winning number on the slot machine at the casino. I've tried telling my mother in law that it's already predetermined if that round is a winner or not, so it doesn't matter which number she picks. She doesn't buy it and gets mad when she picks the "wrong, unlucky" number. Pft, I say too. There's no getting through to those who solely believe in luck.
