12:34:56 07/08/09

A week ago, a friend of mine sent me a text message:

At 12 hours, 34 minutes, and 56 seconds on the 8th of July this year (2009), the time and date will be:

12:34:56 07/08/09

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

This will never happen in your life again. Be the first to tell them!


Well, events like these, where dates and times form special arrangements, surprise me just a little–or not at all. Nothing happens anyway. I mean, take past date arrangements like 08.08.08, 01.04.03, 01/02/03, etc. They were just ordinary days.

But come to think of it, why am I still blogging about this event?
