Good things come in threes.
AMI, FL, USA - Three girls: Helen, Margaret, Lucy
Good things come in threes. True. But we also hear that bad things come in threes. Again, true. For future reference please note that bad news is readily available and nearby when a person is looking for and expecting it!
The same can be said for good news or good fortune. How many times have you heard Hard Luck Charlie exclaim, "Good luck follows (insert a name) around like a lost puppy! He wakes up and Fortune has coffee brewed and waiting on his front porch."
Good things happen to those who are looking for it. One, two, three. Ready, set, go!
So what's with the number 3? No idea, all I have is a cool picture of three girls on a beach.
