Ok, I'm going to break character here and ask a question:
The day that just ended (in addition to being Mission Accomplished Day) was both MJS's 28th birthday (on the secular calendar) and the 28th day of the omer.
Puzzle for anyone who wants to figure it out: What is the maximum number of times that this confluence can occur in a person's lifetime? (Obviously, only the first 49 years of one's life are germane.)
Bonus question: A secular date actually spans two days of the omer. (MJS's 28th birthday was in fact both the 28th and 29th days of the omer.) Answer the question again taking this into account.
[Of course, this can only happen once in your lifetime for your Hebrew birthday. But in the era before the fixed calendar, it could have happened twice for people born in Iyar, and as many as thrice for people born in the first few days of Sivan.]
