As the calendar reaches the date 1O October 2010 , when even in America it is 10/10/10, we have been visiting Mystic Meg about the significance of the numbers.
'Ten is always important' she said 'we have ten fingers and ten toes.'
'Ah, yes' I mused.
'Then we have ten geese a laying and tenderness is a ten letter word.'
'So what does all this mean?'
'So humanity is complete somehow, is it?'
'I'm afraid not. There is little tenderness in the world and how often do you see ten geese, let alone ten geese laying.'
'So what should we do?'
'Notice the seat of power is 10 Downing Street. This is our first sign. But I see trouble.'
'What sort of trouble'.
'Hurricanes. Notice this is ten letters.'
'So it is. So we can expect hurricanes.'
'Indeed. They will engulf 10 Downing Street for ten long years.'
'Will everything be alright then?'
'We will be blown inside out by then. There will be ten hurricanes, one a year and they will leave us desolate.'
'Can we do anything to stop this?'
'We have to start adding. Three tens are thirty. We have to contemplate for 30 days and 30 nights.'
'What will that do?'
'Help us to figure the whole thing out.'
