The Curse of 3


My mom has always, always said that bad things happen in threes. Naturally, I 100% believe her. And, Claudia, yet again has been proven right!

Oh, Ye Curse of 3 – a mysterious, passive aggressive and completely inconvenient monster!

I googled ‘curse of 3’ to see if there was any literature on the topic and coincidentally there is a video game “World of Warcraft” that has a Curse 3… or something?!?

Isn’t it weird that Johnny Cash, Warren Zevon and John Ritter all died in the same September week in 2003? Or that Suzanne Pleshette, Brad Renfro and Heath Ledger all shuffled off the mortal coil within a seven-day period in January of 2008? And when Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died last June 25, just two days after Ed McMahon finally joined Carson on the other side, that couldn’t have just been random, could it?

While conducting my extensive research, I have come to a place of recognition. When incidences occur in 3s, the universe is either playing games with us or killing off our entertainment helping us to realize the connections in ourselves, family and our friends.

Oh, universe, how you tease me so!

When people ask, I say – No, I’m not paranoid, just observant.
