Day 404 of 2022


It’s the 04th of April, which is 2022-04-04. With significant figures exclusively on the day or month, this means today is 404. That’d be fun to reply to work email with as we head to the beach, not to be found.

It reminds me of that Michael Franks song Barefoot on the Beach, which I guess qualifies for our Music Monday this week:

Safely out of reach;
From faxes and the telephone

Wait, I don’t like the beach. Sun burns my skin, and sand gets into my shoes and between my toes and gah! Maybe a coffee shop in the shade with a book?

I like dates like this. Brilliant, fabulous, modest people like you and I that use ISO dates can appreciate it, alongside the global DD/MM/YYYY standard, and even my American friends.
