As I was writing the date today, I suddenly realized it was square root day. 3-3-09.
We haven't had one since 2-2-04.
Although I was alive on 8-8-64, I don't remember it. The first one I remember is 9-9-81. And I remember it being announced on ABC World News Tonight, back when they had the three anchor format.
It was either Max Robinson, Peter Jennings or Frank Reynolds that announced we wouldn't have another one until the 21st century. I kind of think it was Max.
Anyway, I remember thinking how far off that seemed. Time sure flies.
Hopefully we'll all still be around for the next one on 4-4-16. Mark your calendars now, and make sure to return that day for my big Scottius Maximus Square Root Day Festival, right here on Blogger.
