Little Stories 11 : In Numbers . 2


2.4km, that's how far I walked back home today. If I go on with the same routine, I'll be reaching my goal in a week.  *again using RunKeeper application to keep track.

Have I ever mentioned that I am quite obsessed with numbers? Although I don't like calculations, I do like to keep track, in numbers! 

Random example :
I count books that I've read since 2003, that is 292 books and counting.
555 days working with the lab.
Most of my posts are numbered according to their categories.
I played my songs in iTunes according to the number they have been played, because I know the most played songs are songs that I love to repeat over and over again, which means I love them so much. Make sense?

so it reminds me of :

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Grown-ups like numbers. 
When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: "What does his voice sounds like?" "What games does he likes best?" "Does he collects butterflies?". 

They ask: "How old is he?" "How many brothers does he have?" "How much does he weigh?" "How much money does his father make?" 

Only then do they think they know him.
