|~~Our local roses make every day special~~|
Today is December 12, 2012. We've had a day similar to this one each year this decade. 1/1/1. 2/2/2. 3/3/3. You get the picture. So, unless someone adds a thirteenth month next year, we won't see another number combo just like this in our lifetimes.
People tend to place varying levels of importance on dates like these. All those matchy numbers are milestone-like with just the right festive flair. People get married, expectant parents hope for a unique birthdate, and already-born birthday boys and girls enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime day. Of course, some people assign a much more significant meaning (while others disagree).
Me? I'm planning to go to work, attend a couple of meetings and if it doesn't rain, go for a nice walk in the afternoon. Just a regular day - special in all its sameness. What about you? Any big plans today?
