“87th floor, room 24,” says the hotel receptionist as I check in.
“87?! How tall is this hotel?” I exclaim.
“Oh, it’s only two floors up,” she smiles, “but we skip unlucky numbers, and there are a LOT of those around the world.”
“Did you know 87 is unlucky for cricketers?” I joke as I reach for the key.
She frowns, pulls back the key. “Your floor is now called—[typing]—the 111th floor.”
I am about to say something about the number 111, think better of it, and accept the key.
