  2. I see 23 all the time. Majority of the time I look at a clock it has a 23. It’s like clockwork. I always see the number when I watch commercials. It seems to be used heavily in movies and on TV. I was also born on 6/23 at 3:23. For a while last year it started to consume me but now I think it’s sort of fun when I see 23 everywhere. While I was typing this a commercial was on TV and had a baseball team with the main player crossing home base and his jersey was 23.
