The number of things that have had to be repaired in ze auto this year: about six.

The number of people who have gotten engaged/married this year: I've lost track.

The number of times I've injured myself in the past twelve months: three. That's a record.

Out of those three injuries, the number of times I've injured my feet: twice. Right foot, inside metatarsal tendon. Left foot, outside metatarsal tendon. What are the odds? (Well, with my royal clumsiness, really high, actually.)

The number of times I've eaten a bowl of popcorn for dinner in the past ten months: umm.......???

The number of babies that have greeted this evil world in 2010 or will be before the year has past: that I know of? About fourteen, at least.

The number of times I've tallied stuff like this to a T: never. I haven't even given you numbers for everything.

Happy summer!
