They are incredible, amazing, and magical… but also, brains are weird.
I was listening to something the other day, and somebody said ‘thirty-eight’ and I thought to myself ‘ugh, that is such an ugly number.’
Then a moment later I found myself no longer paying attention to anything, but musing over what numbers I find attractive and which I find ugly.
(I like 9, 27, and 53, but 38, 84, and 97 not so much.)
I have no idea what makes me like or dislike these numbers – or why on earth I think 38 is uglier than all the others. But I do.
Is this a ‘just me’ weird thing? Or do you have similar random thoughts? Maybe not about numbers specifically, perhaps there’s something else you have thought to yourself and then wondered why on earth it popped into your head.
