Love the sound of 9-9-9. In England it is their universal emergency number. 09-09-09 is believed to be particularly lucky by many. It represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we'll see in this century. A day to get dressed to the nines! I could go on.
Something unusual was destined to happen and sure enough, our power went out in the evening. My son asked if I wanted to play monopoly and so we did. By candle light. A rare event, that I can interact and play a board game with my teenager. No tv, no computer. A rather enjoyable evening on an eventful day 09-09-09.
