Do you realize that 5 can neither be yellow nor not yellow because there are
no physical representations of numbers or colors? Numbers are symbols and
colors are perceptions, but neither are things.

When I wrote "chart," I visualized a graph. I got preoccupied envisioning
employees driving up a winding road to a learn a new job. Hey, at least I
corrected "their" with "they're."

Oh, crappy. Client's not paying me, kitties are mad because I had them
fixed today, chickens are tearing up my yard so I can't plant my vegetables
without putting up a fence that I don't feel like doing, but it's just a
perceptual crappiness because overall, things are great. I think I feel
orange, today.
