Gad, I passed a milestone I have been awaiting for twenty seven years.
When I was teaching, I made a big TO DO about my 20,000th day on earth. I put it in the school bulletin. I asked students to calculate my birthdate using the date and the figure 20,000. And I pointed out that I would be retired when 30,000 came along.
Then I forgot about it.
came and went day before yesterday. I hope it is not too late to pat myself on the back and chant "thirty thousand, thirty thousand, thirty thousand."
