Somebody on the quilt board asked for help with math.  That’s not all that unusual.  But it was about 3rd grade math.  She wanted to know what size to cut squares to make a 3 inch 4 patch.  Let’s see, 3 divided by 2 is 1 and a half plus two quarter inch seams is 2 inches.

How do people get to be clear grown up adults and not be able to divide 3 in half?

Then there are the people that can’t make a purchase or decision without input from at least a dozen people.  How the hell do they manage to get thru life?

Are people really that dumb?  Or am I really that smart?
