Thalia tosses a crumb to a sugar seeker. “The aaaaaaaa-nts are waking up!” “I’m on it!” Nia heads to the powder room closet in search of liquid bait. “What we have here…” Calliope sneaks a bite of Tal’s snack, “… is a perspective lifter! Another opportunity to solve for X… making us the heroes of our own algebra.”
If I were but a teeny ant,
I’d sneak a bite or two.
If I saw Nia can in hand,
Then I would have to shoo!
My sweet tooth wouldn’t let me just move along.
Now, back to solving equations with three unknowns... 🤓
“[H]eroes of our own algebra”! I love it! There’s gotta be an inspirational academic poster in that, somehow. (With or without math socks. 😉)
