I’m happiest when numbers are nicely patterned. Random oddities kind of drive me crazy.
For example, my daughter goes to lunch during the school day at 12:26. Really? 12:26? What’s wrong with 12:25? Or better yet, just round it up to 12:30, and call it good?
And football…the extra point? I’m all for a big score of 6 points for a touchdown, but then they just throw in this random point for kicking it through the uprights? That makes a total of 7 points, and 7 doesn’t break down nice and even.
Pumping gas? I can’t just stop the pump anywhere! It must be even on the dollar, of course.
