The second of June.
I don't know if it is "blue car syndrome" or not. Blue car syndrome would be after you buy a blue car, then you notice that EVERYONE seems to have a blue car. Before you had a blue car, though, you never paid any attention to them.
Yesterday, I was reading in the reading room (the bathroom) "Wolves of the Calla" by Stephen King. The line I read was this. "The second of June." That was the complete sentence. Then, instantly following it was a knocking on the reading room door. Who was knocking? My beautiful fiance with her June 2nd birthday.
Last night my fiance and I were hanging out in the garage and I was looking through some boxes of old stuff from when I was a kid. I found my eighth grade diploma from St. James Lutheran School. I looked at the date on my diploma, and it was June 2, 1988.
In another box in the garage last night I found my fishing license from the last year I went to Canada fishing with my family. This was something that my family did together for a few years, but when my brothers and sisters and I started getting older, it became more difficult to go, so as a family we were never able to go again. The date of issue of my fishing license was June 2, 1987.
The 2nd of June.
I noted this date quite a bit in the last few months and it seems to be a date for me that is evident in my life very frequently.
June 2nd happenings with their respective years:
1692 – Bridget Bishop is the first person to go to trial in the Salem witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. Found guilty, she is hanged on June 10.
1835 – P. T. Barnum and his circus start their first tour of the United States.
1886 – U.S. President Grover Cleveland marries Frances Folsom in the White House, becoming the only president to wed in the executive mansion.
1896 – Guglielmo Marconi applies for a patent for his newest invention: the radio.
1924 – U.S. President Calvin Coolidge signs the Indian Citizenship Act into law, granting citizenship to all Native Americans born within the territorial limits of the United States.
1980 - The birth Amanda Rae. The love of my life.
I will keep a watchful eye on this date. Or, maybe I won't. Is it all coincidence? Probably not.
