Everywhere I go, I seem to run into the numbers 11-44, and I can’t help think that it’s a sign that something wicked is about to come my way. You see, 11-44 is a frequently used police shorthand for CORONER’S CASE, like 211 is ARMED ROBBERY and 187 is HOMICIDE.
If you’re drunk in public in San Diego, you are likely 647(f).
The time always seems to be 11:44, and when I buy something at the store the total is always $11.44.
Stocks cost $11.44, songs are 11 minutes, 44 seconds long, and basketball teams shoot 11-for-44 from the field.
I don’t know what it is, but I don’t feel like I’ve done anyone wrong lately. Maybe it’s just my time, if you believe in all that.
You heard it here first.
