JusJoJan 8 – Do Things Really Happen In Threes?


I suppose it’s a question for the superstitious of us: yes, I am one.

When something out of the ordinary happens and then happens again within the space of a day, I expect it to happen yet again. Soon. It’s dreadful if two people die unexpectedly. It’s kind of exciting if I hear from two people from my past. In my case, today I had the latter happen.

First, I spoke to an old friend from my MySpace days. (Yeah, that’s a long time ago, right? Gotta be.) And second, I was contacted on Facebook by my ex husband. The one I would have shared a 32nd wedding anniversary with this year. I spoke to him on the phone too, for the first time in more than 20 years.

Will there be a third? Or have I voided the possibility by asking the question? Ah, there’s another superstition.

  1. I find that things come in threes. Did you have a third in this instance?


  2. I’m with you on the superstition. Three surprise delights is always nicer than three you know whats! πŸ™‚


  3. I do not know the answer Linda but I do hope that if the third person contacts you that it will be a lovely surprise and bring you joy!! πŸ™‚


  4. I’m not really a superstitious person but it seems things really do happen in threes… I mean, if you’re really looking for it… Haha. πŸ˜‰


  5. See? Old partners resurface. Mercury retrograde! I follow the three thing, too. If something bad happens, once, then twice, I don’t relax until I hear about the third. Because then I feel that I’ve dodged a bullet. Weird.


  6. Sounds a bit creepy ex’s appearing after all that time Linda. Mine’s in the US right now so I am safe. Happens in three gets thrown around when something bad seems to happen but I don’t take much stock in it.


  7. I believe in that superstition too but only for the bad ones because thats what gives me sleepless nights sometimes. I will take good things any number of time πŸ˜‰ because they are like diamonds.


  8. Wow, a phone conversation with your ex. I’m certainly not going to pry for any personal details, but as a writer I have to tell you that just the mention of such an occurrence has gotten my brain ticking. I hope it ended on a good note, and I wonder what the third thing might be!


  9. That is pretty trippy! Let us know!


  10. I don’t know about good (or bad) things happening in threes, but it is interesting that you had a few blasts from the past today. But you know what, I’ve been posting every day this month so far and I keep forgetting to tag my posts with Just Jot It January or linking back. Oh well. My bad.
