Lucky Numbers

I was reading in Rosie O'Donnell's magazine about how to discover your lucky number. Okay, it goes like birthday is 07/28/ would add it all together, and come up with.....1,995?.....what? I must be doing it wrong!  Okay, maybe you don't add the whole year, maybe just the last two digits of I do that I come up with.....95...then I'm supposed to add those two digits together, and I get.....14....then I add those and come up with 5.
So. My lucky number is 5 I guess....??
It doesn't make any sense. How is 5 lucky for me? God, maybe I did it wrong...
....hmmm......why is everyone so hung up on lucky numbers anyway?
Why not lucky words? I'd rather have a lucky word than a lucky number. It would make the lottery a little more interesting! If the 'winning words' were, like, 'almost/crazy/retribution/any/dormitory/elsewhere.....and the bonus word is: bonus'.


  1. I'm with you on this one! My life number is supposed to be 3 according to some fake psychic. But far as I can tell it hasn't helped me in any way. Maybe we do all need some "lucky" words. Have yourself a great weekend Eve

  2. I just don't understand people who have lucky numbers. I could it possibly, under any circumstances, make any sense? did you know my lucky word was 'weekend'?! lol..have a good one Ron.

  3. Okay wait, I did what you said. I added my birthday and year and it came to 1966. Then I added those numbers together and got 22 which IS my lucky number because it's my husband's birthday!!! See? LOL

  4. Hey Eve! Glad to hear it worked for you. I've never had a lucky number, but my lucky word is 'antidisestablishmentarianism' youngest son's lucky word is 'why'!

  5. The formula gave me 8 which is a meaningless number to me. Our family is big into sports so the boys all wore the same numbers on their uniforms for sports. Don't know if it was lucky for them or not.

    1. Hey Susan...yeah, all of this kind of stuff is meaningless really..I know sports fans and players have all kinds of rituals and things. Odds are it was lucky for them at least some of the time, lol!

  6. According to the numerology calculations my lucky number is 2. I don't know how to connect that to anything, but maybe I should think about it some more.
