A Date to Appreciate
I’ve been thinking about dates recently. No, not the really horrific evenings that women used to spend with me. I’m talking about calendar dates. And I’ve been thinking about them a lot. Like several-hours-per-night, going-to-bed-much-later-than-is-prudent a lot. More on that in a future post, though. For now, here’s an odd little poem about today’s date:
Two, four, six, eight —
A four-digit number that’s really great!
Now multiply by nine, and you’ll calculate
The value of today’s calendar date!
Big props to my friend and colleague Fred Dillon for pointing out this cool fact.
In translation: 2,468 × 9 = 22,212, which is today’s date, 2/22/12.
