40 is a special number
40 is just one of those numbers. It is used a lot in the bible. Forty days of flooding for Noah. Forty days that Moses was up on the mountain. Forty days that Jesus fasted. And the Israelites wandered for 40 days.
And my favorite: Forty is the only number whose letters are in alphabetical order.
I see 40 as special too. It was forty days ago that I last opened my dishwasher. Its just a shame that I was putting dishes in there instead of taking them out. Seriously, I knew I had more forks. Now, I have found them.
