We were driving home from Catherine's violin lesson today when Catherine started telling me about an article she'd read in one of her old Yes Mag(an excellent Canadian science magazine for kids). It was about prime numbers and included a bunch of neat tricks and facts about the number 13.
"I think 13 is my favourite number," she said when she was done.
But then, to my delight, she added, "Prime numbers are awesome."
I glanced back at her. She was staring out the window with a goofy smile on her face.
"Be careful," I said, "You're starting to sound like a math geek."
"So? That's not a bad thing you know"
My turn to wear the goofy smile.
She's a math geek and she likes it! Woo hoo!
