On the first Wednesday of April, at a very early hour in the morning, the time and date were 01:02:03 04/05/06--a unique numerical alignment only to be experienced once during this century. Of course, I slept right through this fleeting, historical (and trivial) second. But later in the day, I was walking across campus at 1:02:03 in the afternoon and reflecting (but not too deeply) on the moment, and that if I didn't use military time (and I don't), then this experience should be just as valid at the nighttime numerical alignment. Viola! I had witnessed history, but I was soon distracted by insects.
