Today I was approximately five hours late for work.
But, I got to spend two just-after-rain hours hiking around with a dozen three and four-year-olds. We discovered about seven different varieties of bugs, collected around 23 dandy long leg spiders, and, after much searching, found three prized caterpillars.
According to my calculations, this all balances out to put me clearly ahead of where I was when I woke up this morning.
(This is the sort of math number problem that makes sense to me.)
