Actual Conversations with J- Episode 5

Back Story: we saw a commercial for a publisher’s clearing house contest where you could win $5000 a week for a year. We thought that sounded pretty good.

J: Wow, that’s a lot of money… like $100,000 a year!
Me: Umm… (frantically doing the math to make sure that’s not right. I’m pretty sure that’s not right- right??)
J: yeah- 52 times 5000… oh wait, no not $100,000, what am I thinking?  more like $200,000
Me: um, no
J: augh!  What am I thinking it’s a little over $250,000.
Me: oh yeah, I’m really good at math, I teach high school math
J: You know what? Let’s factor!

So then he made me do some algebra problems.  It was very romantic.

  1. Haha… that sounds like me trying to do math. “Yea, no wait, uhhmmmm…. huh.” Although, I did teach my students how to tip and calculate percentage the other day. It was a teachable moment… I just hope I taught them right HA!
