Attack of the Nerd Family

Here is a brief recap of the conversation on our commute home today:

Trillian: Dad – that girl from the twelve days of Christmas had a stinkin’ rich boyfriend.
Me: How do you mean?
T: Well, think about all the guy gave her. There were a total of 12 partridges in pear trees.
Me: well, yeah, but that wouldn’t bee TOO expensive.
T: Yeah, but it keeps going up. He gave her 22 turtle doves. Starting on the second day, he gave her two for 11 days.
Zaphod: I wonder how much turtle doves cost in today’s dollars…
T: It gets worse. I mean, he gave her FIVE golden rings, per day.
Me: Yeah, but he didn’t start till the fifth day.
Zaphod: So, you’d use the distributed property. (12-4) * 5 .
T – That would be 40! Have you seen how much those things cost at Kay Jewelers?
Me – That’s a stinkin’ rich boyfriend. She must be a babe.

Trillian is now in her room working out the math on all the other gifts.

I’d ask her to go play with Barbies, but it wouldn’t do any good.
