There are certain numbers that have stuck with me all my life. '1024' is the original address of the house I grew up in before we moved to Norway. Why I remember that I don't know, other than it was probably a time in my life (elementary school) where you really learned your name, address, and phone number (just in case you ever got lost, I guess).
As the city of Niagara Falls grew, they modified addresses and '1024' became '5024' (I think). That number never grabbed hold of me like '1024'.
And so, when I see '1024' anywhere, I'm immediately reminded of my childhood home. And I should have paid attention when the number jumped out at me on my iTouch recently. I remember thinking, "I should tell Miguel to play that number in the lottery". The number just had a feeling about it that day.
But I don't have luck with the lottery. Miguel is the one with the luck. And so I ignored the instinct I had on the number and I didn't say anything to Miguel. And two days later '1024' came up.
A four number hit with a 10 peso play yields $50000 mp (approx $5000). The jackpot that would have been. Sigh...
