Why 5s?

"So, what is up with you and the number 5?"

I get asked this question all the time.

It's a cheesy old story from long ago when Mr 5 & I met back in college.

...and we then started to collect things with the number 5.

It makes me happy to see 5's out in the wild.

and even happier when I find them in books.

  1. 5 is a wonderful number. I say this in all seriousness: I have an affinity for numbers, to put it mildly, to put it simply, and 5 is a good one.
