Summit Up 9-10-11: Wondering what’s going to happen in 2019
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s feeling all Nostradamus-y with today’s date: 9-10-11. What does it mean?
MILLIONS OF SUMMIT UP READERS: Uh, that tomorrow’s Sept. 11, 2011?
SU: True, and while that’s an auspicious date in its own right for many unhappy reasons, it’s not nearly so interesting, numerically, as the upcoming 11-11-11.
BTW: Nostradamus wasn’t really a numerologist, he was more of a whacked-out astrologer. He lived, BTW, in the 1500s in France and, along with being a writer of purportedly prophetic quatrains, he was an apothecary. And that makes us wonder what would happen if we went down to, say, the pharmacy at the Frisco Walmart and asked Nikki if she knows what’s going to happen in, say, May 2019. Tell her you expect her to have some inside scoop since she’s, y’know, an apothecary just like Nostradamus.
Or you could just ask her where the damn Sudafed is. It’s your call.
Someone called and, referencing our recent column about roundabouts, asked if we could remind people the one, basic rule about roundabouts: People in the roundabout have the right-of-way! If you’re not in the roundabout, you have to wait for all the round-about-ing to pass by until you can jump in.
It’s just the way it is. The caller also suggested they should put up some YIELD signs like most roundabouts have. Knowing Denver Water, they’re waiting for the super laser extra-spendy YIELD signs to show up. It’s just the way they are.
Finally today we suggest you get out and check out some of the Fall for the Arts stuff going on. Also, Ollie’s is having a grand opening for their new Breck location (401 S. Main), so that’s worth checking out. There’s music, there’s other stuff, there’s sittin’ around on the couch. Just do it!
