I have read the early Christians during the time of Roman persecution, used the sign of the fish or Ichthys as a code to express their affinity to Christianity. Ichthys is the Ancient Greek word for "fish." The "Christian fish," or "Jesus fish" symbol consists of two intersecting arcs tracing the outline of a fish (most commonly with the fish "swimming" to the left) One person would draw half and if the other was also a Christian, they would complete the picture by drawing the other half.
I was at a restaurant the other night and while waiting for our dinner, got in to a very nice conversation with the couple at the table next to ours. We talked about where we each lived, our vocations, sports and parts of the country we liked best. It was a very nice dinner experience and I thought, what if they were a TTWD couple? As comfortable as I was talking with them, it just didn't seem like the thing to ask!
That's when I thought, wouldn't it be great if we had a secret symbol and could communicate with random others just like the early Christians! It was just a passing thought and although not practical, I decided to share it here on my blog.
I am certain I will continue to observe and wonder about passing strangers and hope they are as lucky as Nina and I. Anyone else want to admit to being as
