17 is my lucky number. Although I am not exactly sure why. What I know is how it started...
It was my sixteenth summer, and my southern California vacation was coming to a close. On Main Street at Disneyland, I bought a stuffed animal as a souvenir, and put a quarter into a Fortune Telling Machine.
A little piece of paper popped out, telling me alleged attributes about myself, and I remember being disappointed that none of them were remotely true. (They probably said something like "looks before leaps, "shy around new people," and "does well in math.") But when it came to my Lucky Number, it said...
And for reasons I can't not recall, I thought this was absolutely, dead-on correct. I was suddenly a satisfied customer.
And I have never, ever waivered. 17, it is!
How about you? If you were to drop a quarter in a Fortune Telling Machine (somewhat like this one)
and it was told you your lucky number, what would it say? And why?
