As I am driving home half-listening to Cooper in the back seat talk incessantly about math, suddenly I realize he is asking me a question.
Cooper: "...add HALF a trickle, subtract ONE bickle, and then add THREE fickles. What do you get?"
Kelly: "Huh? I don't even know what you're talking about."
Cooper: "Ms. Kelly, remember what I was saying about a fickle equals three, a bickle equals two...."
Kelly: "I dont know."
Cooper: "Math is just so much harder now than it was in the old days."
Please note "old days" is referring to when I was in elementary school...because that was SO LONG AGO ;-)
