Odd Number

Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of reason grows. ~John Betjeman

I may be a word person a poet of sorts, but as a child I had a weird relationship with numbers.
As I learned them in the start of schooling, I gave them genders.
  Let me introduce you to my friends:

1. He is a boy
2. She is a girl
3 She is a girl
4 He is a boy
5 She is a girl
6 She is a girl
7 He is a boy
8 She is a girl
9 He is a boy
10 He is a boy

So I guess you realize now, that I am a crazy loon that should probably be locked up in the Loony Ben!  That being said, here is my contribution to today's prompt at Imaginary Gardens.
Today's theme is: Synesthesia

If I decided to date it would be the number 8
she is a symmetrical beauty and
of course she has all the right curves

If I were to marry it would be the number 2
she is never fickle and the perfect number to serve

If I should choose to go camping
my trail hiking companion
choice would be number 9
he is hardy and a little reckless but in spandex
he sure looks fine

If I ever enter a beauty contest I want my judge to be number 10
he is always a good judge of character and his score always means
 you win!


  1. How fun is this?! Great "out of the box" thinking. Very entertaining - made me smile.

  2. I love what you've done with numbers. I will always think of as a girl now, curvy and lovely, ready to marry 2 in a ceremony officiated by 10.

    I love this.

  3. This is an eye-opener for me, Carrie! Having never had a relationship with numbers, perhaps I could be a little friendlier to them now :)

  4. When I was a little girl, I remember being convinced numbers had their own personality to, so you aren't alone in your madness. This was so much fun to read.

    1. ACK... too! (LOL I hate it when I hit return too soon)
