So, what’s so special about three twos on the same date? Some of you want to know.
I don’t know either. I just noticed it and decided to write a blog post about it. That’s all.
Last month we celebrated 1/11 day, so I thought 2/22 day needed some recognition, too.
No, I just checked, there’s no 3/33 day next month. So just bear with me here until I get off this kick I’m on.
They say two is less lonely than one. I’m not totally convinced of that. Especially since I survived a few years living with someone who claimed she “fell out of love” with me.
Sharing meals and a bed with the person you pledged your life to only to be rejected is extremely lonely. Sorry, this is supposed to be a humor post. I promise to lighten things up now.
Two is an interesting word to understand, too. Did you catch the use of all three forms of the word “2”?
That’s two or three letters that sound the same to the human ear but have different meanings when used in print. Oh yeah, there’s a lot of confusion in their usage, too.
Two is the double unit measurement. To is the prepositional word. While too means also when used at the end of a sentence and adds heft to an adjective. That’s just too many definitions for this Webster to keep track of, too.
We devised the word twelve instead of twoteen, just to keep twelve-year-olds bearable one more year. I’m not sure that worked out too well.
The most famous use of the word to is attributed to Shakespeare when he penned, “To be or not to be? That is the question.” Did he ever give a solid answer to that query? I’m not a big fan of Sir William. That’s why I’m asking.
God brought the animals to the Ark in groups of two just to propagate each species He wanted after the flood. I know why the dinosaurs didn’t survive that cataclysm. They simply didn’t fit. You’ll see that in the app I have coming out someday.
Joshua sent two spies into Jericho instead of twelve like Moses did. His experience told him a committee that large was too often wrong.
We’re also told in the Bible that Jesus sent His disciples out in groups of two once. I guess a second time would have proven too devastating or something.
Jesus was much more fond of the number one than two. He told folks He is the way, the truth and the life. He was too narrow-minded to leave room for another entrance into heaven.
How do I know Jesus is right while the others are wrong?
How many of them healed sick people, gave sight to blind folks or raised anybody from the dead?
That’s what I thought. Their miracles don’t hold a candle to what Jesus did with ease. Wait, what do you mean they don’t have any miracles to back their claims up? Why are people listening to them then?
You likely don’t get a paid day off just because this is 2/22 day, but if you did what would you do with it?
Hopefully you’d find a friend to spend the day with so the two of you could have fun, too.
Okay, I know, that’s two too many sentences using all three forms of to in them.
To make sure I’m done doing that I’ll sign off before two o’clock, too.
Keep smiling, too. Wade
