September 10 Through the 19th is Palindrome Week

It’ll be the last one of this century

September 10, 2019

Kraig Karson mentioned to me that today kicks off Palindrome Week and since I’m a visual learner, I had to see it written out! And since I spent the time writing it out, I thought I’d share this information for you.

If we go to Google for the definition, it would tell you that a palindrome is “a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward."

As Missy Elliott would say on “Work It” – “put my thing down, flip it and reverse it …Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup” wait, is that a palindrome?!

For another example, let’s go to Riggs’ Twitter:

Who knows that one off hand?! Riggs does! A simple example would have been “madam”.

But it’s not just about words, it can be number sequences too – like dates! Today is 9.10.19 (or 91.01.9 backward… but that makes my head hurt … 9.10.19 if you move the dots) and tomorrow is 9.11.19.

Palindrome Week will last all the way through next Thursday, September 19! It’s the last one of this century, so take it in while you can.











There it is, written out, in all of its glory! What’s your favorite palindrome?  Hit me up on social media at @JMattMke (same handle on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and TikTok)!
