7,775. Do I wait for 7,777?


About a month ago, I wrote a post about how we like to celebrate numbers with a pattern, like 12:34:56 7/8/9. Or it’s fun to watch an odometer change from 99,999 to 100,000. (See that post here) I implied that we are all a little silly for liking to see "interesting" numbers.

So, what do I do tonight? Right now, I have 7,775 Twitter followers. Sometime during the night, I will probably pass 7,777. That would be a cool number to see.

It’s now 10:30. How long do I wait to get two more followers? If I go to bed, it will probably be past 7,780 by morning.

Why am I even considering this? I KNOW exactly what my Twitter screen will look like. It won’t be a surprise, but I want to see it.

Now, that I say that it makes me feel kind of strange. It’s not like I’ll win a slot machine jack pot. It’s just a number.

A few months ago, my friend, Shecky (@ReallyShecky), sent a tweet announcing that he was at 7,777. I looked at his profile. It said, 7,776. Someone must have unfollowed him in those couple of minutes. A few minutes later, it was 7,778. Would anyone think I was weird that I temporarily unfollowed Shecky so that I could see 7,777 on his profile? Then followed him back?

I think I am going to appeal to my higher reason and go to bed.

If anyone sees my profile at 7,777, take a screen shot and send it to me. @JayKoch.


45 minutes later:


I couldn’t stand it. I stayed up. @JaneWMeade and @amerisud both followed me, but I got up to 7,776. Go figure. But, this was my 7,777th:

Ain’t that a hoot?

 Thankfully Britney went away and Ian was my REAL 7,777th!

Let’s hope Ian stays and Britney stays AWAY!!!

Now, I can go to bed.
