We were going to get married today. Well, that was our thought about 3 months ago when we realized that 11/11 would fall on a Friday.
4 years ago when Scott first appeared in my life, I never paid attention to the omen. But as we started talking late at night on the phone, Scott would interject, “11:11, make a wish” – and thus, our obsession began.
The first time Scott came to visit me in Syracuse, he brought with him a gift – a vintage pocket watch that he permanently set on 11:11 for whenever I was in need of an extra wish. And 4 years later, we make it a point to send a text or shout from a room across the house, MAKE A WISH.
I feel like today, everyone can use a wish. Use it selfishly, or selflessly, whatever you need the most. Tonight, Scott has planned a lovely date night in Rochester at The Revelry, so we will be toasting to another year of wishes coming true.
So good ahead, on 11/11 – what’s your wish??
Happy Weekend, all.
