We live life as if we are going to live indefinitly, but many of us don't even realize we could be gone before we finish reading this sentence. I've lived my time, so far, doing nothing that I have actually wanted to do. From now until I die, my second life has been initiated and it begins with #1.
Nine hundred thirty (09:30)
Reading military time has always been a struggle for me. I had always needed to count from 12 over. I would also not know whether to say "oh nine thirty" or "nine hundred thirty hours". At around 9:30 am, while waiting for the optometrist to open, I had asked Tony the grand question: "What do you want to do before you die?" Like the funny kid that he is, he said some things I'm not going to mention. He then asked me, and I showed him my blog. He saw #53. Know military time, and I explained how I knew how to tell it, but that it just took me a while. I also explained how I didn't know how to say it. He then shared his little secret that he discovered by himself. He said that whatever time was over 12:00, to subtract 2 and erase the tenth. For example: 16:00 - 02:00 = 14:00. 14:00 - the tenth = 04:00. Therefore 16:00 = 04:00 pm. :D
