The Numbers of My Life

I am not a number fan.  I am a letter girl.  And don’t get me started on the mixing of numbers and letters like in algebra.  That’s just wrong.  2x + y = 12?  No.  The numbers need to stay where they belong (on the number line) and the letters need to stay in the alphabet and there should be no fraternizing between them.

The only time I remember having a semi-good time with numbers was at a writing session at Zee’s when the prompt was to enumerate things.  I am going to share some of my “enumerations” here in the hopes that you will think it’s fun and do one of your own.  If you do, I’d love if you’d share it.
