A Serious Vitamin C Deficiency!

No oranges for you

Someone times them by zero

They all disappeared!

Orange peels

Hey! Who multiplied all the oranges?

Until next time . . . I love you

    • Hahaha! I think I’ve make 37′s head explode inside his skull (kind of like throwing up in your mouth) every time I bring it up! And I bet orange peels are absorbent. I used to used them to bite into to see how much more crooked my teeth gotten since the last time I ate an orange. But then I got braces, so I had to say goodbye to that little piece of fun. It was bittersweet.

    • Summers! This is fantastic! And its the segments that make oranges way cooler than apples! :D

      And thank you for mentioning me in your blog. Now I have to run right over there (I’m so vaiin!!) :D

  1. Wow! “Someone times them by zero”.
    That line got me excited. How come we always associate multiplication with increase? You’ve just made me realise that certain multiplication can make things disappear.
    Great Haiku! :)

    • It really can! A friend of my daughter had a boss that was making her life miserable. She multiplied her by zero in her mind and her boss moved to South Africa! It really works and it’s very powerful! :D

  2. There is nothing to get excited about in this haiku. :) Oranges are my favourite fruit…….in case you were looking for some inane trivia about me and my life.

  3. Hahaha very clever. You must know the Williams Carlos Williams poem?

    This Is Just To Say
    by William Carlos Williams

    I have eaten
    the plums
    that were in
    the icebox

    and which
    you were probably
    saving
    for breakfast

    Forgive me
    they were delicious
    so sweet
    and so cold

    • Haha! I’ve never heard it before. Thanks for sharing it, Kymm!. Now I think I’ll go see if there’s a nice cold plum in the the icebox. And if there isn’t, I’ll know who to blame! :D

  4. This post had a lot of a peel. It was also a great nostalgia trip for us old math majors.

    I remember a kid in my 8th grade math class who gave a report on Zero. I think it went like this, in its entirety:

    Zero is not positive. Zero is not negative. Zero is zero.

    Which prompted the teacher to say, “It will also be your grade.”

    Now there’s irony for you, eh, what??? : P

    • LOL! I love that teacher and I can see why you’ve remembered that all these years. I just think it’s so fascinating that you’re a mathematician, Mark. That is just so impressive! Numbers and I could just never come to any kind of an agreement. I’d say the answer was one way and they always disagreed. I could never convince them of anything!!

      I”m so glad this post had a lot of a peel. Orange you glad you stopped by? I am!!
