8 2 3 4

I woke up this morning with these numbers trying to escape from behind my closed eyelids as I ignored the alarm, snuggled back under the duvet against the dog (she was on top of it) and tried to doze for half an hour before getting up to face the day.

8 2 3 4

The radio announcer said it was the 8th January, so that could explain the first number in the series.

This is my second post today, and as a friend of ours is 80 at the end of the month, that accounts for the last two.

But how strange that they should be so prominent in my mind, and what true significance do they hold?

I found myself checking car number plates as we drove out to the woods today for our walk. A bit dodgy as it was my turn to drive, but traffic was pretty light as we were later than usual (but not because of my lie-in) . When we pulled into the car park, there were only a couple of cars we recognised, but none of these numbers were apparent in either of those or any of the others parked there.

It’s wonderful what you can find out on the internet though. There were over 1.1 MILLION results.

Top entry was a huge selection of 8234 available to buy on ebay. Just looking at the first page of the site got me confused as items ranged from tons of Scalextric tracks to sticky tape until I realised that the common thread was the reference number with a variety of prefixes (DUH, brain still asleep) .

8234Unless of course you wanted one of these, a THERMOSKIN ANKLE FOOT FACIA EXTENSOR PLANTAR, “an aid which has a semi-rigid strap that pulls the toes upwards and the foot into a slight dorsi-flexion position. The combination of the thermal properties to reduce inflammation and the stretching of the plantar fascia while sleeping may aid in the recovery of plantar fasciitis”.(as per advert description)

8234 Nobeoka (1997 VK8) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on November 3, 1997 by T. Seki at Geisei. How fascinating.

It also relates to a variety of property addresses for sale throughout the US, ones we could actually afford.

It’s a McDonald’s restaurant in California as well as an Air France flight number.

Here’s creepy though.8234 glassesWe went to the optician’s yesterday, and although we didn’t need new prescriptions, these are a pair of  Eddie Bauer 8234 glasses.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I actually have a different model of the weird plantar fascitis shoe thing. Mine is more of a sock. I have no numbers in my head though. I have only unnumbered files which are by their very nature random and disorganized. I enjoyed the randomness of your post!
