We humans love to find patterns in everything. For the next 10 days, the dates will be palindromes when using the M-DD-YY format.
We’ll only see this for the next 4 years and then twice in another 2 years (6-10-16, 7-10-17, 8-10-18, 9-10-19, 1-21-21, and 2-21-22). Most of us won’t see this again in our lifetimes.
Today at Starbucks I watched this couple while waiting for my Trenta Black Tea No Water Easy Ice Extra Soy Five Pumps Classic One Pump Vanilla.

Well, I did hear him say, “Thanks Babe,” as she set his drink down for him.
One of my pet peeves is the incorrect use of grammar, punctuation, and spelling. With the help of intense psychotherapy, I’ve been able to control the violence that used to consume me when I came across their gross abuse.
So whenever I stumble across the aftermath of someone’s decimation of the written word, I’ll post this little graphic. Spread the good word.
