There are just way too many numbers we have to keep track of in our lives:
Twelve months in a year;
sixteen oz. in a lb;
seven notes in a diatonic scale;
one "X" in a game of Scrabble;
eight slices in a pizza;
le 6' ieme arrondissement;
$2.69/gallon of gas;
four Dove bars in a box;
channel 23 for HBO;
2 minutes and 30 seconds to reheat a dish in the microwave;
six degrees of separation;
Mozart's Clarinet concerto in A Major, K 622...
"...and a partridge in a pear tree."
