Thursday Portrait Math Quiz.....




Yesterday was Chinese Take-Out day. I do so much business there that the owner usually throws in an extra fortune cookie or two. Whilst reading my first fortune, I smiled at the bold prediction. Then when I opened up the second fortune, a strange eerie feeling started creeping up on me. My jaw dropped, I visibly started shaking, I broke out in a cold sweat, and I had to sit down.
(Uh...I may have embellished that reaction a wee bit...:P)
OK...I'm not exactly Sir Issac Newton, but I did kinda see something very odd. Of course the obvious is the ONLY lucky number that appears on BOTH fortunes is...?
AND, (now this is very very odd indeed) please ADD all of the lucky numbers on the first fortune...Then SUBTRACT all of the lucky numbers on the second fortune.
What is that number?.....Need I ask?
Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!!!!!!!!!

Never mind the numbers, because numbers are Math, and I don't do Math -- what did you have to eat? I love a good lo mein when I get Chinese.:)

I'm way too lazy to do it and just read the comments. I'm guessing 55 too. I think they're trying to tell you something. Happy Thanksgiving.

I just had my turkey dinner and some wine, so I came out with 105! :D Call me dumb, call me a dumb blonde...I don't care...but, I did notice the 2 55's on the slips!
OK, happy now...Enjoy your boid..and now I'm gettin me another glass of vino!!

Susan at Stony River said...

Wow, Mr. Math, how did you come up with that?!

And yes, strange.... I'd say it's a sign of an extra-good batch of 55's out tomorrow. I wonder how many will be about turkey, dysfunctional families and football? LOL

Are you sure you haven't been using Photoshop? Too hard to believe ~ but, hey, I'm gullible. Hope you're having a great Turkey Day. Even celebrated on this side of the pond. A little unconventional menu, but yummy nonetheless. See you tomorrow.
