Forgotten significance

Do you ever get the feeling that a certain date is important, but you can’t figure out why? You are sure you’re supposed to remember something about it…

4/20 rings a bell. Is it a colleague’s birthday? A friend’s wedding anniversary? Maybe it’s a personal commemoration—my first kiss (but that was at a cast party at university, so it must have been in the winter…) or the start of a new job. It’s not recent; nothing special is noted in the past three years of my weblog.

I just can’t put my finger on it and it’s making me a little crazy this morning.

Is it bad that I can’t remember when my first kiss was?

well… not that it would have any significance for *you* but it’s Stoner’s New Year!

The shootings at Columbine High were April 20th, 1999. The bombing of the Murrah Federal Building was April 19th 1995. It’s weird, I woke up this morning with that same feeling about the date, and I remembered Oklahoma City as I was driving on the Interstate. Creepy.

Yeah, what Jenny said - that’s why it rings a bell to me anyway.

As to the stoner new year, I don’t get that. I mean it’s not like you’re going to do something that is special on that day… if yer a true stoner, a) any day that ends in a Y is reason enough and b) you’ll forget 4/20 until 4/21 comes around :)

I don’t know since when— anyway my husband forgot our wedding aniversary, so I also forgot it. Though it passed more than 20 years since we married.
