What is your favorite number? Actually, I am not fond of numbers. Dyscalculia had me standing at the black board while the other kids were playing. First, I cannot remember number facts; second, I reverse numbers–heading for I95 and I might end up on Route 59. Dialing numbers on the telephone or inputting them into the computer and I go crazy, crazy.
Numbers are not my friends and not one has become a favorite.
I am particularly out of sorts with the number three and come to think of it with most odd numbers. Why? We seem to be bred to pair off .
As a parent, watch two kids playing quietly and happily; add a third and peace vanishes. Groups of four usually pair off, add another and there’s a fifth wheel on the wagon. No I don’t like odd numbers just a bit more than I don’t like even numbers.
