67. Math is fun

Math is fun, the teacher said.

Virginia didn’t believe him. Those strange numbers and odd signs. She’d distrusted them when her parents prepped her for her first school day. And she distrusted them now, all white and chalky on the blackboard.

So she decided to skip math. Forever.

    Math has produced many a great thing, but it also has brought suffering to an early age for many a student.

  2. I chuckled, and I *never* chuckle. Well done, sir.

    I like the ending where math caught up with Virginia. That made this story really funny. I wonder what she was thinking when she was counting sheep. Great story.

  4. As someone who loves maths, but can also appreciate the difficulties it can present to many, I think that this is a great little story. Well written!

    I hated math. I found out in college I could take 2 years of a foreign language instead. so….it was 2 years of German with Herr Blumenthal. Today I can proudly say “being me the newspaper” in German. Not that it ever comes up mind you.


  6. I was always bad at maths. English, history etc all went well but maths drove me to distraction!

    Given my hatred of math I had to read this! I too have been in math avoidance for many years. Isn’t it funny how it just tries to sneak up on you? I particularly enjoyed the humorous ending.
