I’m sure I’m the only one that knows this but I always schedule my blogs to publish at 7:03am. Very few times have they posted at any other time of the day.
Why? I have no clue! I am not a superstitious person but for as long as I can remember I have liked 3’s and 7’s. Any alarm I set is set with a 3 or a 7. For example, I wake up at 6:03 or 5:27. Again, no clue where this started but I always get weird looks or comments when I do.
However, recently I was setting an alarm in front of my family and Brett didn’t flinch. This surprised me so I asked “you don’t think I’m weird for that?”
“Nope! I do the same thing.”
I was in shock. “Have you always done that? Why?”
He actually had a reason… “Well, if I need to actually start my day at 7, I’ll set it for 6:57. That gives me 3 minutes to fully wake up and get my feet on the ground by 7. It maximizes the sleep I get and makes me feel less rushed.”
“Do you do this for other things besides waking up?” I asked.
“Yup…but it doesn’t revolve around 3s and 7s like yours. I just pick random times.”
At this point my parents are laughing and shaking their heads at both of us. “You’re both strange. Where did you come from?”
