Arguments between my wife and I are rare. During our over 5 years of wedded bliss, we have been upset with each other….like…..maybe 3 times.
1 time resulting in me leaving for 2 days. I wasn’t told to leave….I was just scared to come back.
That was our 1st argument.
The next 2 resulted in her attempting to not talk to me.
I say attempting because as she was giving me her best silent treatment, I was following her relentlessly around the house saying-
“Are you ready to talk to me yet….how about now…..am I getting warmer….how about now?”
She eventually broke and gave in.
Today was #4.
What caused it?
A post on Facebook.
She was scrolling through her page feed thingie (I haven’t been on “the book” in over a year) as I sat next to her entrenched in solving “pi”.
You know, Wikipedia tells me-
Being an irrational number, π cannot be expressed exactly as a common fraction. Consequently its decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanent repeating pattern. The digits appear to be randomly distributed although no proof of this has yet been discovered. Also, π is a transcendental number – a number that is not the root of any nonzero polynomial having rational coefficients. This transcendence of π implies that it is impossible to solve the ancient challenge of squaring the circle with a compass and straight-edge.
I’m calling shenanigans. I’m determined to solve it,
But that’s another story.
The post she showed me was this-
I immediately put my #2 pencil back into my pocket protector and said,
“There is no great debate. It’s A.”
We shouted the first 2 letters of the alphabet back and forth at each other, thereby contributing to the great debate.
I am now sitting in time out….in the lavatory.
I have changed my life altering scientific experiment.
Instead of having my pi and solving it too….
I am conducting an experiment on the pros and cons of
Roll model A vs. Roll model B
You see me rollin’
Setting the paper right
To keep ya from ridin dirty
Solving the worlds problems….
That’s how I roll.
