If ever there was an uugitdee-boogitdee looking date, this is it.
You can almost hear the big clock chiming and the owls hooting.
We are the last ones this century who get to see the numbers line up like this. Oh, there will be a 2/2/22 and a 3/3/33 and so on. But once 12/12/12 passes by, this total line-up of the same numbers straight across is over and done for living memory.
Human beings are good at the business of creating barriers out of nothing. 12/12/12 feels like the end of something, but it’s really just another day in the long march of days that make up our lives.
Still … we’ll never see it again.
Stop for a moment and think about it. Each day is like that, you know. We’ll never see any of them again.
What are you going to do today?
