Twelve Years Ago and Now

11/08/2011 , , 1 Comments

Okay, this is weird. Check these similarities out. . . .

Twelve years ago we were in a crazy scary apocalyptic like storm where the hail rain upon us so fast and furious that very few people had escape the physical damage it caused. Our skylight in the diningroom, for example, was busted, and we came home to a diningroom full of glass and hail. Kevin had to climb on the roof and tarp it.

This year (twelve years later) we were hit by a crazy, scary tornado, and our roof got damaged, and that same ugly ass blue tarp we had used to cover the gaping skylight hole twelve years ago, is on our roof right now.

Twelve years ago, Kevin’s brother died at the beginning of the year.

This year, my mom died at the beginning of the year.

Twelve years ago, Kevin got a different job.

This year, he also got a different job.

Twelve years ago, Kevin bought a Ford truck.

This year, he also bought a Ford truck.

Isn’t that weird?

I think there are more similarities, but I can’t think of them right now. But twelve years ago was the year of the rabbit, and the mirrored events from 1999 to this year seems more than just coincidental. Therefore, it makes Kevin and I wonder what 2012, which is the year of the dragon, which Kevin was born in the year of the dragon, is going to be like. We wonder if it’s going to be similar to our year back in 2000.

What about you? Can you think of any similarities that had happened to you twelve years ago and this year?
