Here's your magic number, right here [Aug. 31st, 2007|08:51 am]

Screw all this mystical crap -- God is 7, the Beer Gods prefer 22, the Beast goes by 222 -- and then all of that navel-gazing, number-crunching perfect number, DaVinci code drivel.

The magic number is $175. If I average the washer repair bill from today with the plumber's bill from yesterday, they each average out to $175. If I average the car repair bill from last week with the grocery bill (including the rental of the steam cleaner to clean my o-so-grody carpets) this also came out to an average of $175 -- to two decimal places, people. And oddly enough, that's what I average on an typical client session, after all expenses, overhead, taxes, etc.

So, clearly, sevens, pi's, fours, twenty-twos and all of those needy, needy primes are really not the important numbers.

$175.

That's what it costs to restore order to your life.

On average.
