Numbers Are Our Friends

12 Nov

A lot of people look at math and numbers and screech out, “Eeww”!

My mom is different.  It runs in her family.  Her sister is the same way.  They like numbers.  They like math.  They do math problems to relax.  Weird aren’t they? To them dealing with math, is as easy as tying your shoes.  I don’t agree.  That’s why me and dad wear shoes that slip on or use velcro – snorts.  Also to me, dealing with math is like a dog working a yo-yo.  It just isn’t natural, right?

But I have something for you this morning that will blow your mind my friends.  I want you to get out a piece of paper and a pen and/or pencil.  Now, here’s the scary part – pay attention now.  I want you to write down exactly what I say below.  Okay?  I’ll help you out each step of the way.  I learned something while I was gazing at the calendar this morning and it was totally cool.

Write down the number of the month.  This is November so it would be 11.

Now write down the number of what day it is.  Today is the 12.

Now write down the two digit year.  13

What do you have for today when you write it out?  11/12/13

Neat huh?  Who said numbers can’t be fun?  Now go share 🙂

    HaHa! I play around with numbers too Bacon. I write knitting and crochet patterns which are all about numbers. I try very hard to keep my patterns easy to follow so I am always trying to “deal with” remainders” or leftover numbers. A pattern is supposed to be a pattern and remainders throw the pattern out. (your Mom will get it) 🙂

      Moms strange like that. I can’t believe she plays with numbers all day and then comes home to play with them to “relax”. She is funny like that. XOXO – Bacon
