It’s funny how certain numbers hold significance.
When I logged in to the blog tonight, I noticed that the blog contains 1,960 entries. 1960 happens to be the year I was born, so it stuck out straight away.
The blog contains 10,910 comments, which happens to be an exact multiple of my old warrant number.
I still think of myself as my old warrant number, even though I’ve been out of the game for three years now. Just last week I had to sign for something at work. Automatically I added a scribble after which I appended my old warrant number instead of my civilian number.
Some old habits die really hard.
