### I had a 56 T-Bird

This is what we woke up to this morning. I like it.

* If someone had told me this:

56 is the sum of the first six triangular numbers (making it a tetrahedral number), as well as the sum of six consecutive primes (3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17). It is also a tetranacci number and a pronic number. Adding up the divisors of 1 through 8 gives 56. Since 56 is twice a perfect number, it is itself a semiperfect number.

I might have been more interested in math. LOL. Probably not.

* 1956 was a leap year. And now, 56 years later, it's a leap year, again. In 1956, November 21st was the day before Thanksgiving. And now, 56 years later, it is again. In 1956 I was born on a Wednesday, and now 56 years later, I'm 56 on a Wednesday. How often does something like that happen? Is anyone else reeling?

* All I wanted was you by my side. Baby, you're only along for the ride. Only along for the ride.
