Nine Seconds

The other day, my 7yo daughter ran into the kitchen with a challenge for me:

Her: “Dad! Guess how long my arms are?”

Me: “I dunno... how long?”

Her: “Nine seconds!”


Kids are the best :-D

Here’s the thing...

Measuring your arms by the second is not one bit weirder than measuring your projects by the hour.

Both are category errors, but (much to my chagrin) one is obvious to most people and the other one isn’t.
