PI Day

PLOL (piggy laughing out loud)  Talk about me a little oinker having a one track mind on food – snorts.  I knew if I mentioned PIE you would think eatable, wonderful crusted yummies.  You know like apple pie, rhubarb pie, cherry pie or banana cream pie – licks piggy lips.  Yummo!  But I digress.  This post is absolutely *not* about pie of that sort.  Shocker huh?  You think I’ve lost my little piggy mind – maybe I’ve finally went over the deep end – I’m full?  Nah, none of those things.  Snorts.

But this day is about pie.

You still think I’m off my rocker huh?  Let me explain.

Today’s date is 03.14.2018.  Now look closely at that date and tell me what you see.  Those that get it, smile and pat yourself on the back – way to go my friends!  Those that didn’t, look closer.

Let’s back track a little bit.  Math is our friend.  😉 winks  Look closer: 03.14.2018. Still nothing?

Maybe you need a visual.  Yeah.  Okay – here you go:

Therefore, today is PIE day – snorts.  A little math humor.  I can’t help it.  Math is a wonderful tool that mom and my Aunt Tina absolutely love.  So, don’t forget to tell people Happy PIE day and then blow their mind.

Your Shoes Can Tell Your Age?!

No – not by what they are looking like silly.  I’m talking about math.  Yep, your shoes can tell your age with math.  Don’t believe me, do you?  Okay, I see that I’m going to have to prove this to you.  Stay with me on these calculations and I will show you.

Math is fun my friends – don’t run out because I said the ugly four letter “m” word.  Math is fun – mom plays with numbers everyday.  You’re going to love this.

Get a piece of paper and a pencil handy.

1.  Take your shoe size (no half sizes – round up).  Mom wears 9.5 so I’m going size 10 here.

2.  Multiply the shoe size by 5.  In mom’s situation, it would be 10X5 = 50

3.  Add 50.  In mom’s situation, it would be 50+50 = 100

4.  Multiply by 20.  In mom’s siutation, it would be 100X20 = 2000

5.  Add 1017.  In mom’s situation, it would be 2000+1017 = 3017

6.  Subtract the year you were born.  3017 – 1969 = 1,048

The first 2 numbers is your shoe size, the last two numbers is your age

It’s SHOE magic – see, your shoes can tell your age!

I Found the Answer

There I was minding my own business surfing the night to find the answers to all the questions.  That’s when I saw this picture.  There you go my friends.  That’s the answer.  What?  You don’t know what I’m talking about?  Okay think about it.  Go back in time when you were in school and you had that math class that asked the answer.  If Juan had watermelons, how many could he fit in the car.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Now you get it?

12-13-14

Have you looked at your calendar today yet?  Do you see anything unique?  Today’s the 12th month of the year, the 13 the day of the month and year 14.  12-13-14  Awesome huh?

Look to see a lot of weddings taking place today.  I guess that’s one way people can actually remember their anniversary dates – snorts.

Blast from the Past

WOW – mom got all sentimental on this toy from her childhood.  The Little Professor was released in June 1976 from Texas Instruments.  It was marketed as the first electronic educational toy.  I think this is where mom found her fondness of math and to these day loves numbers.  So many people hate math but it’s really in the way it is presented.  I think by having fun with the Little Professor, mom started off with a fondness of math.   She got that far away look in her eyes and reminisced about being 7 and walking around the house ‘calculating’.  She got pretty good at it too!

I checked this item out on ebay as well.  It runs from around $25.00 and up.  Not a good turn around knowing that when it first came out in 1976, the price was $20.00.

Daddy never had one growing up – maybe that explains his dislike for math.  I wonder if it’s too late for this little piggy to start using it?

Did you have a Little Professor?  Do tell.

Numbers Are Our Friends

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 🙂

It’s SHOE magic – see, your shoes can tell your age!
