Notes

My life has felt a little out of control the last few weeks, which has led me to cleaning my desk. As is always the case, I have encountered notes on meeting agendas that now make no sense to me. Most of them are like this:

What I Do at Meetings

The pictures aren’t mysterious, because I’m always doodling. It’s the math that baffles me. If I’m doing math, there’s usually a pretty good reason for it, the kind of thing that sticks in my head.

Because my math is almost always about money. Money I might have or money I might not have. Sometimes it’s statistics.

Then there was this:

Because Ghosts Have Rights Just Like the Rest of Us

No idea.

Maybe further excavation of my desk will reveal the answer.

    Ghosts are always pretty much pissed about one thing or other, so don’t spend too much time stressing out about them.

    I’m glad you are taking the ghosts feeling under consideration!

    I don’t understand how you are doing math – lining up the numbers to do math anyway. I also don’t understand how the fifth graders here are doing it, so I have 4 hours every Wednesday where I have no idea what’s going on, but have to translate it into English. I secretly tell the kids I hate math. I ask the teacher if I can someone turn it into an art lesson…

    Mmm, could the ghosts be concerned about the lack of money? That’s where they really need to do the math – broke ghosts are so hard to get along with…

    I confess that I often consider how the ghosts will feel. I try not to let it prevent me from doing things, though. :)

    Kevin, So true!

    Arlene, We don’t discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy status, sex, age, marital status, disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, or whether or not you can breathe.

    Heidi, Oh, I don’t really understand how I do math, either.

    Tanita, Maybe I was thinking about soliciting donations from them.

    Olivia, We all know you’re too busy singing the Peewee’s Playhouse theme song to worry about ghosts.

    How many ghosts are there? Has a solid count been made? They want us to stay ghosts forever, don’t they.

    I think the math was how many hours someone would work in a year, that’s the only reason people multiply by 52. Perhaps it’s how many hours a week the ghosts are in the library? I think you need to expand your supernatural collection for them, then they’ll feel better.

    I love numbers!

    Play the soundtrack for Whisper House. The ghosts enjoy that.
