Non-Euclidian Geometry and Roast

Isn't it funny how you go through different phases of your life and your vocabulary changes?


When I was in college I fancied myself as having a pretty decent vocabulary.


Today I'm talking roast, potatoes, carrots and a side salad with chocolate chip cookies. I'm cooking for a friend who just had a baby.


On the other hand, my son who is a junior in high school came in talking about finding the area of Quantum Nutrinospheres!! Please tell me you've never heard of such!

If Quantum ... is part of your regular vocabulary then I'm afraid we can never be friends.


Oh, he tells me it's part of non -euclidian geometry. Did I spell that right? I don't know!


Hope you all have a wonderful day. It's beautiful spring time!

I have absolutely no clue what your son is talking about! See, don't you feel better already? :)

Now Stacy, as a former Geometry teacher, I know what that means and we are friends. Of course, I retired from all that. Anyway this post gave me a good chuckle. I enjoyed the grilling from yesterday.

I am VERY relieved to say that I have NO idea what any of that means. LOL!

Here's a scary thing, though... I am a licensed English teacher who just ended a 7-year run as a full-time SAHM to part-time WAHM. Part of my job is to... tutor Algebra. ACK!!! Whose brilliant idea was that, anyway???

Blessings on this beautiful Sunday!

Well, like I said, I am retired. I can't even remember what I went after from one room to the next let alone Geometry. LOL It was just too funny to pass up. But I agree, there aren't many people, kids especially, that would know those words. ( I'm not too sure about the N word either) Funny!!

Speaking another language entirely. I never even got algebra. Or Spanish. I majored in the one thing in college I could get a degree in that wouldn't require me to take a math class! Journalism!

I'm pleased to tell you that we CAN be friends :-)

You are cracking me up today.

Have a great day.

Oh good, we can be friends! I have never used the word quantum and don't plan on it. Just a simple everyday mom here!

Darlene said...

Oh girl we can be great friends cause I would NEVER use those words much less know what they even mean!!!!....lol

So blessed! said...

Glad we can remain friends. LOL...

Kathleen Grace said...

Duhhh, what? I know what you mean when you talk food but geometry? Um, no. Thankfully, the days of sweating over mathmatical problems is behind me and I am so glad!

It sounds vaguely familiar so I may have studied it before... but it has been so long I wouldn't know what to do with it anymore. :) And to think my kids will be asking me for help with their homework.... ;)

Hi Stacey, your blog is terrific! Your son must be a real smartie - I would never be able to help him if he had a question! And aren't you nice to cook for your friend - mmm, sounds yummy.

LOL! Nope, I haven't a clue!

When my son was in college, he would come home and talk to the Mister about differential equations......I'd say, "so tell me about your friends!!" :)
So yes, ma'am, I will be your friend...it's all Greek to me!

Stacey! We must be twins separated at birth. Math, especially geometry, is a language I do not speak. I only recently began to stammer in computer and only to communicate with my blog buddies.What is your mother's maiden name? I'm sure we are related!LOL
