Tizzy and P-Dawg's Sanctum of Doom
I'm sure most of you are familiar, by now, with the fact that today marks the tenth anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death. It got me thinking about how much importance we place on specific numbers. Did anyone care when it was the ninth anniversary of his death? Will anyone say anything on the eleventh? Probably not. But the tenth, now. That's important. Why? Is it because it means a decade has passed since he last breathed? Why should that mean anything different from 12 years having passed, since the latter means even more time has been thrust between then and now?|
I say let's start recognizing the lesser-celebrated numbers. I think it's about time they got some attention.
"Hey, man, how long have you and your wife been married?"
"It'll be 7 years next Tuesday."
"Congratulations! Wow, what a milestone! I hope you have something really special planned!"
