Friday's Feast


How fast can you type?

Well, finally something I'm good at. As I recall, I received my 80 WPM pin in high school and that was on a manual typewriter. Just think how fast I can go now.

What is your favorite online game?

The only online game I've played is free Bingo. I love to gamble so I definitely stay away from the on-line casinos.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 as highest), how intelligent do you think you are?

Duh!!! Not smart enough.

Main Course
Name three of your best teachers from your school years.

Oh, this one is going to be fun. Don't know if the following were the best, but they definitely are memorable.

My high school history teacher could recite every page from our text book. He would always give us interesting facts that I remember today i.e. which president got stuck in the bathtub or a brain teaser like the following:

Three men are checking into a hotel and will be sharing a room. (This isn't dirty) The desk clerk tells the men the room will be $30. Each man pays $10 and goes to their room. The desk clerk feels he overcharged the men so he gives the bellhop $5 and asks him to take it to the men that just checked in. That made the room $25 for the night. ($30 - $5 =$25) On the way to the men's room the bellhop thought if he would give each man $1 they would be happy and he could keep $2. That would mean the men would have paid $9 each for the room ($9 X 3 = $27 + $2 = $29) What happened to the other dollar?

My typing teacher from high school would dye her hair to match her outfit. We always looked forward to seeing what the "color of day" was going to be. And I do mean colors like pink and blue.

An English teacher from college. She looked like she could be a quarterback for the Rams. If you went to her house after class and drank with her you got an A, if not a C or below. Guess what I got?

What are your plans for this upcoming weekend?

Entertaining my step-son and his family who live in FL. I've also invited my son, his girlfriend and her daughter to come for dinner on Sunday.

thanks for visiting my FF. Did anyone ever figure out what did happen to that extra $1???

God bless!

Linda said...

Yes, its all about numbers lie. You must go back to the $25 that the room cost. The men got $1 each and the bellhop kept $2. $3+2=$5. $25+$5=$30

Thanks for visiting

I don't like calculating so I will never know ! But remembering your teachers that way is great. These kind of things I remember too, lol ! My first teacher was a woman (not a lady) she was fat, big and very ugly with yellow teeth size of a rapid's front teeth and when she spoke she spat around ! Can you immagine a teacher like that for kids aged 6 ? What a horror !

Math teasers drive me nuts! That part of my DNA doesn't work...I loved your description of your had me in stitches. We had a female drama teacher that hit on all the guys - finally ran off with one. Didn't go over real well in 1965!

I never have liked problems like that so I just skipped over it. I still will not try to do them. Also I am wondering what you got in that class where you were supposed to drink with your teacher??? I would have definitely flunked for sure!! Sandy

Linda said...

I was wondering if someone would ask about my grade. I think it was a C even though I made an A on my final essay. She kept turning down my topics, then she finally told me to write about the leading lady in 3 of Shirley Jackson's short stories. I will never forget that.
