Life by the Numbers

Posted by on Mar 15, 2015 in The Blog | 11 Comments

The other day I was talking to my friend about all of the numbers that crowd our lives. Cell phone numbers,  land line number (although I hear that last one makes me a bit of a dinosaur) pin numbers, pass codes, followers, ratings (that’s job specific though LOL!) anyway …

It made me think about my life in numbers and I found myself being surprised by the numbers and what they said about me. Many made me feel a bit silly.  I love to laugh so I though I’d share:
