G: We had our math placement test for junior high today.
G: There was stuff on there I've never seen before. What are those problems with the number between two lines?
Me: I don't know, draw one for me and maybe I'll recognize it.
G: It looked like | 25 |
Me: I have no idea what that is.
(pause while both of us look at it, baffled)
Me: Maybe it means, "Twenty-five, YAY!"*
We both got a good laugh out of that. Clearly neither of us will be medaling in the Math Olympics anytime soon.
