I thank my lucky stars I am not a superstitious man. With a name like David Seven I suppose I was just born lucky. Or at least that would be true if I had actually been named David Seven.
So when I won my 12th award on the One-Minute Writer, it was a little bit on a bittersweet moment. On the one hand 12 is a lot of times to win anything, but on the other hand the next one would be 13.
So I guess it was time to see whether lucky 7 could defeat unlucky 13.
And then my name proved to be appropriately lucky indeed.
The question was asked recently on One-Minute Writer:
What do you think is the most important question in life?
Well, my Mommy always told me not to answer a question with a question. However, she also told me not to talk to strangers, and look what I am doing now. So I decided to answer. (Is a question ever an answer? Don’t answer that.)
What time is lunch?
And then luck set in. Hedgie followed up with the question,
Will there be dessert?
As a result, we are sharing the award for that week. So rather than call it my number 13, I shall refer to it as 12 and a bit.
