DO YOU FACE BOOK?  I don't have a face book page, but my wife does.  So, I snoop on hers from time to time.  OK   all the time.  Recently there was a face book thing going around like a contagious disease. It was someone posting a number of things about themselves that they assumed most people wouldn't know.  As this ailment went viral, one of my children posted some things that they thought people wouldn't know. OK several of them posted things about themselves, and the one common thing seemed to deal with a fetish with numbers.  Along with some other people who had posted things about them selves, it seems that most of them also had a thing with numbers.  Some don't like odd numbers.  Some don't like a particular number.  Some count things in their mind as they go along.  And to add to all this, members of our extended family also posted their thing with numbers.  Members of the family from both sides of the family.  Mine and that of my wife's.   Although we didn't post it, my wife and I also admitted to each other the not so unique things we have or do with numbers.  Ha!  Wouldn't you like to know.
So, what do you do with numbers? Do you have a fetish?  Do you use them to count your money? Or other possessions? Or your blessings? How many friends you have that are actual friends, or just face book friends. I have a grandson who is a pilot and he uses numbers to calculate what ever it is that pilots have to calculate. 
People use numbers to determine what time it is, what day it is, how many days it is until their birthday, or Christmas, or what ever holiday or event date they are waiting for. So, yes, numbers play a large part in our lives.
It is just the way so many of us use numbers that actually have nothing to do with the statements in green that we all had a chuckle over. So go your merry way, count your steps and don't be embarrased if someone sees you counting, cause they are likely doing the same thing.
