My First Encounter
The day I decided to purchase a theme and create this website was certainly a memorable one.
During the summer of 2017, I purchased personalized license plates for my car. My new plates say “ I C 333” I was pretty excited to get these to see if it generated conversations or responses from the general public about 333. NOTHING but crickets, until February 19, 2018.
On February 19, 2018, I took a break and went to the movies. I am usually early, however, on this occasion I was going mach1 with my hair on fire to get there on time. I parked and rushed to buy a ticket when I realized in my haste I left my cell phone on the front seat.I wasn’t about to sit and watch a movie while my phone gleaming in the sunshine tempted would be thieves. So with that, I went back to the car to retrieve my phone. As I approached my car I saw that now a truck had parked next to me and the driver was sitting there with his front door opened. As I unlocked the car, I heard him say, “I like your license plate”. I spun around, in a loud and assertive voice I asked him WHY? He replied, “Cause I see 333 all the time” “Been happening for a few years now” I was elated. I stayed and chatted with him about 10 minutes knowing I was missing the previews. For 6 months not a single person acknowledged my license plate. On the day I start the website process for 333, I forget my phone in the car which I never do, just to go back and have this guy comment on my plates. Had I not forgotten my phone I would never have had this encounter with him. Again, choreographed.
