Numbers play a big part of daily life. This week’s questions are all related, in one way or another, to numbers.
But before we start counting to six, kudos goes to Jude of “My Way” was first to play last week. Congratulations, Jude!
Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment there, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!
1. If you were to count to three on your fingers, would you hold up your thumb, index and middle finger, or your ?
2. What was the last thing you remember counting in your home? Unmatched socks – I think there were seventeen that the Sock Monster had eaten.
3. When you are listening to someone who uses repetitious phrases when speaking, such as, “you know,” how many of them do you generally need to hear before you begin subconsciously counting the occurrences? I don't count them.
4. Take the quiz: What is your expression number? Boy, does this miss the mark by a mile or what:
Your Expression Number is 3
A natural performer, your destiny lies in writing, speaking, acting, or teaching.
5. You’re calling a friend on the telephone and he’s not home: assuming he didn’t have voicemail, do you actually count how many rings go by or do you just hang up after a time you feel is sufficient for him to answer? I have a standing rule to let it ring ten times and then hang up if an answering machine or voice-mail or call-forwarding haven't intervened. It's something they taught us at the Rand Corporation.
6. You go out to eat and you order a plate of twelve chicken wings. Do you actually count them before eating? Sometimes, particularly if they “appear” to be short.
