A revealing item in my make-up is I have been around the block with mathematics, even though I have long forgotten most of my learnings. Prime numbers are part of the past I still remember as numbers only divisible by themselves and 1.
Using the initial several prime numbers, let me reveal stories for your weekend cogitation.
1 – represents the number of people the US President will not blame for his mistakes.
2 – represents the number of folks it takes to Tango.
3 – represents the number of blind mice or wise men, but just for fun transpose the two groups of three and see how the stories vary.
5 – represents the first part of the Five and Dime stores. Just think what we can buy for a nickel these days, which may only be avoiding change on a $1.05 purchase.
7 – represents the number of deadly sins. First prize for the person to name them in a comment is a nickel.
11 – represents the number of donuts that make it home when I go pick up a dozen.
13 – represents the number of bagels you get from a highly frequented baker in a baker’s dozen.
17 – represents the jersey number of retired quarterback Dandy Don Meredith, who achieved more fame as the initial trio of announcers on Monday Night Football – when the outcome of the game was in hand he would sing “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.”
19 – represents the numerator of a favorite fraction I use to illustrate a point- someone can do the right thing 19 times out of 20, but the one time will get all the press.
23 – represents the number of donuts that make it home when I buy two dozen, noting the second dozen is an assortment (cake donuts rock).
29 – represents my current age on my birthday, as in I just celebrated the 31st anniversary of my 29th birthday.
31 – represents an ideal age where you survived your twenties and know more what you want and can navigate the world’s landmines a little better.
Have a great weekend. If you finish this post without wanting to go to Dunkin or Krispy Kreme, you deserve another nickel.
