    Oh man, I need a panic room too. Only, I think my panic room will have to be all of the outside. Let’s just keep all the other people in their houses so that I can hop around and act crazy without anyone watchin’ … ‘cept out their windows, I guess. 🙂

    I have been there and done ‘that’ at both ‘ends’.
    ‘Maths’ and I do better now – but we’ll never be ‘besties’.

    We had a ‘boy’ who thought he’d go into meteorology – but the maths …he took after me, and changed his focus. All those complex formula. I can just about remember my own telephone number…
