Eleven Eleven...make a wish!
Did you ever do that? Look at the clock and see that it was 11:11? At some point in my life, I found that it was cool to make a wish when that happened. Someone would notice the time and say "Eleven Eleven, make a wish!"
Now, there are some people who have taken that concept a bit too far.
Today is 11/11/2005. I wonder how many people will look at the clock today and see that it is 11:11 on 11/11? What are they going to do, make a super special wish? I wonder what the folks back in the year 1111 did?
"I do say, it is a most agreeable prospect."
"Good heaven's man, look at the time."
"What do you mean poppycock? It's eleven eleven on eleven eleven, eleven eleven AD!"
"But I'm eleven minutes late for my morning crumpets and tea!"
Eleven Eleven on Eleven Eleven, Eleven Eleven AD. Wouldn't that have been crazy? Ever since 1259 AD, there hasn't been a year where the time could match the year...that is unless of course you're using military time and then you've got until 2400.
