3’s 3″s 3″s 3’s 3’s 3’s 3’s 3’s 3″s

Everything happens in 3’s why?

 

It is very common to hear someone say, “everything happens in 3’s.”  I say it all the time. However, I most often say this when the 3’s are associated with me braking someone, something going wrong, disasters or misplacing something.  So again today I had to ask myself why do things happen in 3’s? Lets face it, if you know me I almost have a 3 tattooed on my back like “kick me.”

I asked Wikipedia about the

Rule of three (writing)

 
 

The rule of three is a writing principle that suggests that things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things. The reader or audience of this form of text is also more likely to consume information if it is written in groups of threes. From slogans (“Go, fight, win!”) to films, many things are structured in threes. Examples include The Three Stooges,Three Little PigsThree Billy Goats GruffGoldilocks and the Three Bears.

A series of three often creates a progression in which the tension is created, built up, and finally released. Similarly, adjectives are often grouped in threes to emphasize an idea.

That is according to Wikipedia

According to Cindy, here is what I think of 3’s

I don’t think things happen in three’s but I think we expect them to happen, so we notice more often than not when they do.   One thing is for sure, when 2 things have happened I”ve always waited for the shoe to drop and the third thing to happen and it usually does.

So here is my 3 last week

We arrived home to replacing a stove, washer and bedroom.

This week the door on the fireplace, a window, and a chimney lining.

Oh and BTW I’m liking my stove all the way. When the electric one gave out on me I decided to start cooking with gas again.

See the bottom, I can’t put my frying pans there anymore as it is a warming tray.

 Do you have the same association with 3’s as I do?

Have a great weekend ~00~ Cindy
