Fuzzy Math

John and I were trying to hang five fruit plaques on the soffit above our cabinets this evening. We measured the space and then divided by five. But then I realized that I actually wanted to hang the plaques four inches in from each side of the wall. At this point John had a plan...

John - "I think we should divide the length in half to figure out where the center fruit should be hung."

Christy - "That is a good idea."

John - "Yeah, we'll cut it in half and then times it by two."

Oh, boy. This sounds like my kind of math. I used to be almost a math genius. Twelve years ago. Now things like "17 + 6" trip me up.

Hubby, the engineer, is slowly forgetting how to spell, though. So we average out okay.

I swear my brain has not come back either. God knows how I sold real estate when I suck at math.
