So, I’ve been pretty busy with Hunted copy edits, but just had to share. My husband (Architect # 1) was at a basketball practice with one of his partners (Architect # 2). They received a text message from my brother-in-law (Electrician) who was trying to help my seventh grade niece with her homework in geometry.
No…I don’t remember what the problem was. Something about three corners of a square in a rectangle, or something like that. Well, the three men couldn’t agree. So my husband contacted his other partner (Architect # 3), who came up with a completely different answer. (Keep in mind, this is while basketball practice was going on, and these guys are the coaches.)
So, Hubby texted his uncle, who is a geologist. The geologist was at a political dinner with a bunch of state senators. He and two of the senators (one Democrat, one Republican) sketched the answer out on a napkin and forwarded it to my husband. YES. Bi-partisan politics is possible…if we’re taking about 7th grade geometry.
Well…they all came up with what they thought was the answer (3) and sent it to my brother-in-law. My niece got her paper back yesterday…and the answer, was, ah, 5. 🙂
