The joke goes like this: “Why is a math book so sad? Because it has so many problems.” But of course that’s a distortion of the truth. In fact, the math book loves its problems. Its problems are its reason for being. Besides that, all of its problems are interesting challenges, not frustrating curses. Best of all, every problem has a definite answer, and all the answers are provided in the back of the book. Now here’s the most excellent news of all, Cancerian: I think you’ll be like a math book in the coming weeks.

Here’s to being like a math book… a battle math book.

I have stuff going on in my life that I don’t blog about here but some of my friends who read this know what I’m talking about. I’m going into battle this week and there’s a chance that I’ll come out very bruised but also a chance for victory. A good chance, as it happens. I’ve been dreading this for a while but now that it’s here I’m feeling ready to swing that metaphorical battle axe.

Bring it on. I’ve got the answer key right here, bitches.
