This is serious. Most people had been waiting all year to welcome 2010 (because anything was better than 2009) but I have been waiting for 2010 to arrive MY WHOLE LIFE!
That’s right. You know their names; I’m talking about the greats, guys like Brett Favre, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., David Lee Roth, Avery Harrison and yours truly, David Arthur Spetrino Jr. – yep, all 10’s.
(What? You’re surprised I’m a Libra? Surely you are kidding…)
Look, don’t feel bad if you have a ‘regular’ birth date. After all, your chances of being born on October 10th are like what? 1 in 365? Don’t beat yourself up about it. I’m sure you have other great qualities. Maybe you are nice to animals. That’s a fantastic trait!
But you’ve got to admit, there is really something amazing about being born on 10-10, it’s so efficient--heck, it’s binary!
It’s such a great number too, I mean think about it. Was Bo Derek a “perfect 9”?
You don’t hear anybody talking about Moses walking on water with 11 Commandments do you? Of course not.
Ten fingers? Ten toes? Shall I keep going?
I wish I could tell you which came first, my love of the number 10 or the number 10 loving me. Tens just seem to follow me around. After all, we live at #10 Church Street (not #8 or #12). Coincidence? Luck? I don’t think so. It’s a mutual attraction I suppose.
What does this mean to you? Everything of course, for I am glad to share the Year of the Dave with you too. Just by being my friend makes you an automatic member of the Year of the Dave Club.
And what a great year we are going to have together!
I have a myriad of events planned and good fortune for all to enjoy, but let’s go ahead and save the date for the 10-10-10 extravaganza right now.
That’s right, mark your calendars – I’m throwing myself a party. Yes, you and all of our other Year of the Dave friends are invited. House rules are simple:
- Don’t bring anything unless it has #10 on it.
- Only my favorite foods will be served (so if you don’t like mint chip ice cream, Diet Coke, cheese pizza or buttered noodles, eat before you come)
- You must wear a blue shirt. (this is so I can easily identify those that read these rules and those that are just crashing the party)
Most importantly, please know how much I am looking forward to sharing the Year of the Dave with you.
It’s a once in a lifetime event so let’s enjoy it together, to the fullest extent. And please don’t get angry if we get into a disagreement and I ‘pull rank’ on you by throwing down the tie breaking ‘Year of the Dave’ card. You can get me back on 1-1-11, I promise.
