Of course I had to do the honorary 12-12-12 post as something like this isn't going to happen again for 89 years (at 01-01-2101) so I have to write a post mentioning it is 12-12-12 today. It is also my oldest brother's birthday. It is also going to snow in southern California! Well at my kid's school at least. They are having a snow day- bringing in snow somehow to celebrate this momentous occasion.
When I was picking up awards at the Scout store the teenage clerk asked me if it was tomorrow (12/12) or later in the month that the world was supposed to end as he couldn't remember.
I told him it was the 21st. Funny how a few years back when it was further away people made a huge deal about 12/21/12- the day the Mayan calendars end- but now that it is almost here you never hear anything about it.
My theory- because people like to be in denial of what is around them and what is happening around them.
By no means do I think the world is going to end next week. But I do think people like to be blind to the craziness, the subtle changes, the shift of values and morals that is going on around them- it is easier that way. But if you don't open your eyes now and then well something is just going to bite you in the butt.
So here's to a fun once in a life time sort of day and here's to keeping my eyes wide open.
