Because it's 09/09/09

I thought I needed to post something today because of the triple 9 date. I don't really know why I wanted, er needed to post today when the date simply has no relevance to me. I am not a follower of Numerology. I don't even know much about it. But somehow, the fact that the date will not come again in 100 years made this a significant day. I learned today that because of the date, someone rushed to get married.

Do I put much stock in numbers? Nope. As a matter of fact, I do not want to tell people my age, and that's a number. I don't want to give out my phone number. I am not superstitious about any number. Although, on Friday the 13th, I can be a bit cautious (hehehe).

Except for birthdays and anniversaries of people I love, I don't really remember dates. But there are numbers/ dates that stuck to my brain.

100 - I got a card from my boyfriend (now husband) on our first 100 days of dating. Pretty unique, I thought, since we gals are more into monthsaries, etc. But when he surprised me with this thoughtful card wishing me a wonderful 100 days and more days of togetherness to come, I knew he was a keeper.

2/20/1993 - The day I left for the United States to live permanently. Okay, at that time the word permanently was not in my consciousness; although my family were all in US.

6/28/1998 - My first day @ work here in my present job. My how time flies.

See that's all I remember. I can't even remember the time I became a US citizen. I don't remember what year it was.

So, there, that's the post. Very pathetic eh?

Geez, I was married on 09/09/77--something I was reminded of when I came home late from a class last night!
our attitude to numbers can be similar ... :) I don't remember much about numbers or dates ... just birthdays of loved ones. I do like telephone numbers that are easy to remember though (i especially picked my telphone numbers so that they are easy to remember).
