"Joss, what is wrong with 123?"
I dunno. My membership card just came in with #649. I guess somebody else in WERA, somewhere, already had it.
It wasn't a real "fateful" number anyway I guess. When I got to the registration window at Roebling, that first morning, I had sort of had my brain set on the luckiness of the number they were going to issue me; sort of like getting a fortune cookie. I was kind of excited to see what it would be.
Turned out, though, the lady just looked at me and said, "Well, what number do you want?" Instant brain lock. There I am at the front of the registration line, faced with a life or death question of what my "luck number" will be.
All I could think of was 666.... no way! Next best was just "one, two, three"... score zero for degree of difficulty and zero for style. Sigh.
I like the picture though...
. The yellow helmet and green shirt goes well with the yellow plates, don't you think?
