It's not Pi Day, but it's 11-12-13. That's got to count for something.
We only get one more of these, people. That would be 12-13-14 next year. After that, it's all downhill.
And in some ways, we've already crested since last year on Dec. 12, 2012 at 12:12 and 12 seconds was the last fun we were able to have with that.
Nov. 11, 2011 at 11:11 and 11 seconds was even more of a numerical milestone.
Now we're just stuck with dates, and not hours, minutes and seconds in the day.
Of course, there's always military time. So we can enjoy 11-12-13 today at the 14th hour, 15th minute and 16th second. Only then will we feel the full impact of today's sequentiality.
One couple trying to do just that are Jennifer and Benton Crozier of Jacksonville, Fla., who decided to celebrate the day by getting married at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
"We just knew we would have a blast," the groom told KTNV TV. "You know kind of some hedonism and all kinds of fun to be had with the family."
The wedding bells may be ringing again next year in the 15th hour of 12-13-14. But that's it, because unless you know of a military calendar that tacks on extra months, we're all out of counting.
The Count would be rolling over in his grave, a statement that makes me both laugh and feel sad since the original puppeteer for The Count, Jerry Nelson, died in 2012. There's a new guy, in case you were worried.
Still, it's not as if there was free pie today. For that we'll have to wait for March 14, or 3.14. Actually, National Pie Day is Jan. 23 for no particular reason, but i'm sure there's free pie somewhere on Pi Day.
And truly, if one were to stretch out the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, one should wait until 1:59 a.m. and 26 seconds, a fine time for pie indeed.
And mark your calendars for Square Root Day in 2016. That will be 4/4/16, and that will be the last one of those until 5/5/25.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
