Happy World Down Syndrome Day

March 21 (3/21) is World Down Syndrome Day. It was chosen to signify the uniqueness of Down Syndrome in the triplication (trisomy) of the the 21st chromosome and is used synonimously with Down Syndrome.

Commemoration of World Down Syndrome Day began in March, 2006. It has grown manifold globally. The observance is used to promote awareness and understanding of Down syndrome and related issues; and to mobilize support and recognition for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with Down syndrome.

Phone Follies

I generally called Annette or she me at least once a week. Since she lived long distance, I dialed an eighteen digit number (an extra 7 digits to get cheap long distance of course).

My fingers flew over the keypad faster than my mind could think of the numbers. It was just an automatic physical reaction to key in those numbers without even thinking of them. I used 2 thumbs as once. (Maybe I will make a good texter some day...)

I sat down to call Tom the other day. My fingers began their thing without me thinking.

Then I stopped.

My fingers had forgotten.

My mind had forgotten.

I tried 3 times.

Couldn't get it.

Had to look up the number in my phone book.
