Thank You Karen Spears Zacharias

One of mine and Jason's favorite writers, Karen Spears Zacharias, had a recent blog entry that Jason, as a lapsed Catholic, found a wee bit strange and puzzling. As a recovered Southern Baptist, I knew both the question and the answer.

Question: Will you go to Heaven?

Only acceptable (to the type who set up this booth) answer: Yes, because I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and invited him into my heart. (I will not, at this time, get into the underlying meanness to this question when asked to those who do not know the "right" answer and who after giving their heartfelt best answer are slapped down with a big fat wrong, you are going to HELL!!!)

But what I found SO EXCITING about this blog post was not the how to get into Heaven question, but the MATH DREAM!!!

It has been, until now, one of those little things that I was sort of ashamed to say out loud because it sounds so stupid. But I have, for years, had math dreams where I was going to college and kept forgetting to go to math class and when I did go, I was so far behind that I had to drop out of college.

Not once or twice, but frequently. I'm sure it is some sort of performance anxiety dream, but I wonder, now that I know I'm not alone in my terror of math, how common is the math class dream?

Thor sez: You humans are so strange.

Regarding religion, one friend of mine uses this quote all the time: "I don't know and neither do you."

Math dreams, huh? I plagued myself with the difference between adjectives and adverbs.

So glad to know I'm not the only person who suffers the Math nightmares.
