No, that’s not a typo. It makes perfect sense to me- November 1, 2011. Don’t you get it??
And yes, there are other crazy people like me- there is a “condition” called Synesthesia, in which people see numbers as colors and vice versa (there are many other types too). Example- I see a phone number as a string of colors. This has been happening for I don’t know how long…maybe it was brain-washing from Sesame Street or something. But occasionally I notice that something tastes like the smell of something else. I recently ate pasta salad that tasted like the smell of formaldehyde (think: cat dissection in anatomy class). Needless to say I threw it out!
Sometimes the colors don’t sit well with me. Eric’s going to be 37 next year, which I see as yellow-blue. The colors don’t seem to go together and it’s not because I don’t like U of M. Weird, huh?
