I saw the word of the day and thought “Oh goodie! MATH!” Now I know the rest of the world doesn’t see math as fun…and I didn’t either until I went back to college as an adult. But certain words bring about certain emotions and when I see the word finite my brain goes into overdrive, my pulse leaps and I am seriously focused on finding a solution.
Of course, I am no longer taking any college courses, and math is not on my mind every day the way it used to be….but seeing a word like the word of the day (finite for those who have forgotten already) makes me see stuff like this:
And my fingers itch to grab a calculator or slide rule…yes I KNOW how to use a slide rule. I sort of prefer it. No, I really and truly DO prefer a slide rule. It makes me think more….and it doesn’t use batteries.
Well, drat. I went off into left field and now haven’t a clue where I meant to go.
Since that is pretty typical for me though (unless I am working a math problem) I’m just going to go off and read other people’s posts. They are bound to be more focused than mine.
