N is for Numbers


Numbers never stay inside my brain
They wash away like morning rain,
Phone numbers, birthdays, addresses, too
What’s a number hating gal to do?
Stepping on the scale can be a fright
When I see the results of my binge last night,
Numbers, numbers, everywhere
They like to catch me unaware,
There’s no escape, nowhere to hide
I should know because I’ve tried,
Speed limits, grocery prices, bills galore
I’ve had it with numbers, my brain is sore!

    1. Yep. Numbers are cruel that way. They tell the truth with such a painful reality.

  4. I used to have an incredible memory for numbers. I'd hear someone's birthday one time and have it locked in memory. My mother, aunt, and daughters can/could do it too. I hate to admit it, but I'm losing my trick with age. It might have to do with artificial sweeteners.
