If you are correct about this 11:11 thingy, don't you think that something would have happened by now ?
11 Nov 2011 - Nothing
11 Nov 2012 - Nothing
22 Nov 2012 - Nothing
Notice a pattern here ?
12 Dec 2012 - Oooo i wonder what might happen. Nothing !!!! Again.
This 11:11 thing is turning into a damp squib.
Those who are giving out these codes havn't got a clue what to do with them.
Something very powerful... transformative, even... happened to me on 11/11/11. I wasn't even looking for anything interesting on that day. Not that
I'm not into numbers like that. I am. I was just rather out of touch that week, living in the country, and broke on top of it. I was playing Portal
and living on unemployment, oblivious of the date until a couple of days later.
Two wolf hybrids that I was caring for escaped from me, and since I knew that the bigger one was friendly and non-agressive with the local livestock
(being well fed always), I made a 30 minute search of the neighborhood and decided that since they would be back in the morning when they got hungry,
I would see about looking for them then.
That night, the pair allegedly killed two prize alpacas. Not wool-growers. Foo-foo prize breeding stock. Long story short, insurance covered the
farmers' losses (and then some, I'm sure!). But what happened inside of me was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through.
Those wolves were the beloved pets of a couple of dear friends, who trusted me with the care of their animal friends. I failed them utterly, and I
basically had to make a choice between life and pride. The wolves had to be re-homed (I was actually impressed that the farmers didn't push for
killing them). My pride was so wounded, and I was sincerely remorseful, and I got to a point where I had to say, Am I going to kill myself or let this
pass? I'm glad I let it pass, and it was to date one of the most difficult lessons of my life.
Non-judgment is the only way to get through something like that.
