I made a small mistake at work today. I lost a smidge over $2,000. I can’t find it anywhere.
Before you call the state auditor or the Fargo Forum or anything, it’s just lost on paper, not in reality. I’ll find it. I should have paid more attention in pre-calculus class. Or remedial math. I’m definitely missing something. (I hope Ms. Campfield isn’t reading this; all I remember from junior high algebra class is to say “r” like a pirate. “R”? Isn’t algebra about “x”s?)
Here is some easy math, though:
I drew Erma a stoplight and a parking spot this evening with her new box of (now smashed, thank you, Sigourney) colored chalk, and suddenly our driveway became a map to the city, the region, the world. She can take an idea and really chalk it up to something!
An evening well spent!
Wish me luck tomorrow balancing my distributions. If I can’t find my mistake, the assistant boss is going to have me walk the plank. Arrr!
