Today's the end of June, 2009. I have a scientific theory that as humans age, time actually speeds up. Of course, we've all heard the theory that time actually does not exist at all - it only appears to exist to help us through our human experiences. But my theory is that between (approximately) the ages of 0 and 10, a year actually takes about 1 1/2 to 2 years to pass. Then between 11 and about 25, a year is basically a year's time.
From about 25 to about 40, a year passes every 10 months or so. From 41 to about 55, it speeds up to about 6 months. After 55, a year passes every 3 months! Christmas comes every three months! Almost as soon as we take down the tree and put away the ornaments, it's time to get them out again!
So it's the end of June, 2009. It's been 1 1/2 months since the beginning of 2009, and it's about 1 1/2 months 'till Christmas.
Have a great Summer!
