Ideabird 9/5/12

Everyone wakes with a date emblazoned in their minds. It's always a date in the past for older folks, often in the future for younger folks. The relatives of the sick and dying figure it out first. The date is the half-way point in your life. Whatever the date was/is it represents half of your life. Some people takes everything from the halfway point as "downhill." Others vow to go out on top. For one young couple they calculate they are to die together in two weeks. A tiny subset of children get dates a thousand years in the future.
