crunchin' the numbers

Sometimes this kid's brilliance scares me. Take this conversation:

Me: Zoralee, honey, I need to know what is 13.589204 x 3.0178399.
Zoralee: Hang tight, Ma.

crunch, crunch, crunch add a little spittle
lemme verify the maker of this thing...
Me: Quit messin' around. I need that figure.
Zoralee: Got it.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahhaha! That is awesome. Zoralee is brilliant, just as we suspected!

I love how she just lays back and goes right back to her bidness doing her own thing as you show her results to the camera.

Yeah, she's not one to revel in her glory.

I like that after seeing there was a rounding error, should be 41.010042, and checking the mfg she shrugs it off and figures good enough, its just Mom.

You are so right, Don. Oh my word. I hadn't specified that I wanted it rounded to the nearest millionth place (or whatever that would be). I guess she used her best judgment.

Could I hire Z to help me with my financial planning and bill paying? She looks like she's got the knack.

Perhaps you should start saving money now, for her to attend MIT.
