There is Some Wisdom in Numbers! You know?

Round and around the numbers-go-round we do go:

Is it One for the money?’

No! It’s ‘Two for the show!’

On Three, ‘it’s to get ready?’

No! No! There are Four really ready important words in life you know: love, honesty, truth and respect!‘ And add, ‘Steady as you go!’

Why are there so many Five ways to do this and Five ways to do that?’

Maybe it’s to stimulate our ‘Sixth Sense’ or maybe it’s just pure nonsense!

Have you ever been in Seventh Heaven?’

No! But I once ate there or was it ‘Behind the Eight Ball that I went!?’

Have you ever been really under the spell of ‘Love Potion No. Nine?’

Yes! But most often after drinking a little too much rosy-red Barbera wine!’

**********

To which my wife expectedly asks,

‘What does that really mean!?’

Honey! Just trying to make rhyme!

Not trying to make any real sense!

and as the Koreans might say,

Man, you’re really Number 10!👎🏼

  6. 👍 lol, great post! I don’t know if there is wisdom in numbers, but there is certainly magic 😻 My number is 5 and never never fails. I don’t know why but it does. Hey, maybe there is some truth about the Fibonacci numbers? I wonder. I like to read about it. It’s interesting.

      1.
