NUMBER TWO AS IN COUPLE - ON CLOUD NINE - being very happy or in love.
The number nine goes back to the Christian concept of the Trinity: 3x3=9. Clouds were said to have layers, and the highest layer was number 9. When someone was very happy, they were said to be soaring in the clouds. It was assumed they were on the highest cloud, number 9.
I moved yesterday, and came across a heart shaped box I've kept (and forgot about) full of every single note I've ever received from my friends in middle and high school. Most of them are from my best friend during that period of my life, Sarah. Finding them and curating for School Rules this morning inspired me to write this.
