We all know what they are.
Words that read the same backwards and forwards.
We all use many of them.
madam - refer - civic - mum - dad - pop - level - boob - nun -
radar - noon - glenelg ( a famous Adelaide beach, not so nice now that it's all "touristed" up)
But how many of us notice numerical palindromes?
I like numbers, so when I see these, my mind does a little happy dance.
Many times at work, when I'm totalling a customer's purchases, the sum will be a numerical palindrome.
Ignoring all dollar signs, we have 61.16; 23.32; 18.81; and the more obvious ones - 33.33; 55.55; 99.99
Dates too have their palindrome list.
This year for example, we have the eleventh of November.
here are a few more:-
(I won't write the obvious, the eleventh of almost every month this year)
12-1-21 and the twelfth of almost every month in the year 21 (can't use October)
(You'll notice I'm ignoring the "20" just as in the last century everyone ignored the "19")
Moving on --->
19-1-91, a year I will never see,
13-8-31, a year I hope to see
(I'll be 79)
Sequential numbers give me a little happy too.
Last year's 8-9-10 for example.
This year's 9-10-11
I'm sure you all can come up with more examples
