The Luckiest Baby?

Posted by Mike Merritt in Independence Week on

I end the second annual Independence Week with a story that I won’t be able to talk about for another one thousand years (assuming I’m alive then).

Certain days are always ones that couple seem to target for normal activities in the world, including weddings and…ummm…baby making. As it turned out, Saturday was 7/7/07, possibly the luckiest day of the all. But, wouldn’t it be luckier if your baby was born at 7:07:07? Or, there were born at 7lbs, 7 ounces? Well, that happened in at least one case around the world. Newborn Jack Falkner was born Saturday, weighing in at exactly that weight. Obviously, the mythology of the number seven’s luckiness goes back far. Not sure how accurate this is, but according to Wikipedia, the number seven is lucky, at least in biblical terms, because it represents the union between a man (the number 3) and women (the number 4). Not that I exactly ever look closely into the bible, but there’s one reasoning. Take it or leave it, I guess. All I can say is that I hope Jack Falkner finds luck in life!

So ends the second annual Independence Week. I definitely did better this year than last, since I completed an entry for every day! I’d like to continue this trend (one entry every day, that is) even when it’s not IW, but we’ll see what happens! Until next year, this has been Independence Week, signing off!
