11:11:11 on 11/11

One of my special abilities (my wife disbelieves and mocks this claim of mine) is that I have knack for looking at the clock when it is 11:11. It happens to me several times each week.

Imagine my pleasure when I glanced at the clock today at 11:11 and realized today is November 11th. I’ll be sure to watch again this evening when it rolls around again to observe when the seconds also hit the eleven mark: 11:11:11 on 11/11.

Five years from today, I’ll throw an Eleven party and invite all my hendecaphiliac friends to celebrate the moment when it is 11:11:11 on 11/11/11.

I can’t wait.

(Special note: it took me a solid fifteen minutes of web-sleuthing to come up with the word hendecaphilia, which is the affinity for the number eleven. If I had more time, I would have written this blog post in hendecasyllabic verse.)
