So it’s summer, and your parents want to take a fun trip. Maybe, like me, you are home from college for the summer, and they missed you. Maybe you are still in high school, and this is the summer before your senior year, and they can hear the clock ticking down hours until you spread your wings and fly away. Either way, I would like to share a story with you. It is part comedy, part horror, and all memoir.
This essay contains some adult language, so if that offends you….. well, EXCUUUUUUSE ME!
Last night I decided to do something I have never done before: I went to a Broccoli Project play. I know what you’re thinking: “OMG, those people are crazy.” And you are right, but don’t let that stop you from going to see their current production, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, because you will be missing out on some great dark comedy. Seriously, you will laugh at some very inappropriate jokes, and you will not feel bad about it. Maybe a little. But mostly not.

An interesting idea from my Plan II math textbook, “Mathematics, the New Golden Age,” by Keith Devlin–
A basic mathematical abstraction is that of numbers… By a process that seems almost miraculous when you come to think about it, all small children come to recognize that a collection of three apples, a collection of three uncles, a collection of three flowers, all have something in common… What makes this seem miraculous is that there is not anything in the world that is the number three… (And you will realize just how abstract the concept is if you try to explain what the number three is without using the word three or threeness.) p 38-39
