Hello World!

Welcome to the life and chronicles of My Jersey Boys and me, B (the only girl who hangs out with them). Our original mission was to prove that not all of Jersey is obsessed with GTL. Now it's kind of become the place where we share our random thoughts, ridiculous stories, regular quote updates, and maybe a picture or video here and there. There's always something going on...

Love from,
The one and only,
B

Table 23…

Posted by StuckintheSeventies423 on 11:18 AM

Around here, the number twenty-three always manages to raise a few eyebrows whenever it’s mentioned. For some reason, the number twenty-three seems to have completely surpassed the number thirteen when it comes to baring a negative connotation. The number twenty-three isn’t really supposed to be unlucky it just seems that a lot of really horrible things have happened in history when that number is involved. I always get a weird feeling whenever I look at the clock and it’s some random hour and twenty-three minutes (which has been happening a lot). Lately twenty-three has been popping up in just about every movie I’ve seen in the past few weeks. Here’s a short list:

1. In Final Destination 2, the highway pile-up at the beginning occurs on Route 23.

2. In The Big Lebowski, the Dude always used lane 23 at the bowling alley.

3. In Jeepers Creepers, the creature comes out to kill every 23 years for 23 days straight.

4. In Star Wars: A New Hope, Princess Leia is being kept in detention block AA23.

5. In Scary Movie 2, Tori Spelling gets fucked by a ghost on Friday the 23rd.

6. In Escape from L.A., Los Angeles is separated from the mainland when a massive earthquake strikes on the 23rd of August.

7. More of an error than anything else but in the original Halloween, Michael Myers is listed in the credits as being 23 years old. However, if you do the math he’s only supposed to be 21 in the movie.

None of these things come across as being very positive, unless you like bowling. For some reason, bad things happen when the number twenty-three is involved but I may have found the one exception. The wormhole that many have died trying to find (not really) and it lies… in the center of the restaurant I work in! Two years ago, we added a new table to the room, which fell awkwardly in between rows twenty and thirty. Seeing as it was always closer to row twenty, it seemed only right that it would be numbered accordingly. However, one girl thought it would make more sense to just call it twenty-two and a half (table 22.5) as opposed to just adding a whole new number to the row. I told her how confusing this was and how there was no logic behind wanting to call it twenty-two and a half. I was hoping that she would say it had something to do with the negativity surrounding the number twenty-three but there was never any mention of it… she was just stupid.

So I changed it back on the seating chart where it has remained. Surprisingly, table twenty-three is considered a pretty “hot” table. Whatever it is about that particular spot just makes people want to spend their money. No one has ever gotten a cheap group at that table and nothing has ever gone horribly wrong either (in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had food sent back on me). Of course, now that I’ve written about it and have to go into work later, I’m probably going to get table twenty-three and all hell will break loose! Well, at least I won't be surprised.

Till next time, let us rock in peace...
