A variety pack day  

Sometimes it seems things come in threes.
   
I was surprised to find out there was a "rule of three".  It "...is a principle in writing that suggests that things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things." ~ Wikipeda

A lot of things come in threes.  Here is a partial list from Yahoo Answers.
 
3 Billy Goats Gruff
3 Coins in a Fountain
3 French Hens (song)
3 Days of the Condor
3 Bones in the Human Ear
3 Miles in a League
3 Old King Cole's Fiddlers
3 Bronte sisters (Charlotte, Emily, Anne)
3 Goals in a Hat Trick (hockey)
3 Little Pigs
3 Bears in Goldilocks
3 Sheets to the Wind
3 Times a Lady
3 Minute Egg
3 Piece Suit
3 Feet in a Yard
3 Books in Lord of the Rings
3 Ring Circus
3 Ships of Christopher Columbus
3 Sheets to the Wind
3 Books in a Trilogy
3 Witches in Macbeth
3 Heads on the Dog Cerberus
3 Little Kittens They Lost Their Mittens
3 Wheels on a Tricycle
3 Stooges
3 Blind Mice
3 Wise Men
3 Legged Race
3 Ring Circus
3 Wheeler
See the rest of the list here if you are interested.

So what is the deal with triaphilia?
  
'One reason might be a sort of number mysticism. Three is the first odd prime number, the triangle is a stable shape, in our base 10 system, the fraction 1/3 is .3333333…, et cetera.' ~ ABC News
   
 I had a flat.
 
 Are there two more in my future?
