I am fond of symmetry. Synchronicity floats my boat, too. Round numbers are good. Ducks in a row. I liked having two daughters, two dogs, and two cats. I still have the daughters, thank god. And one lonely cat.
I like patterns, too; my birthday is the 24th, one daughter the 23rd, the other the 25th--though all in different months.
I was married on December 29th, 1976. My marriage ended on July 30, 2007. The final decree of divorce was issued on July 31, 2008. See the pattern? Could it be that my lucky day is nigh and the division of joint assets will at last be completed? July seems like the month in which "divorce-y" things happen.
