When is a quarter a half of a fifth or a third? When it is ajar....that's when.
So last night Wifey and I go out to a local BBQ place for a bite to eat.
Wifey wants a BBQ chicken sandwich, I want a burger.
Here is the conversation.
WIFEY: "I want the bbq chicken and I also want a hamburger, but I can't eat that much."
ME: "Why don't we split it up...you give me half of your chicken sandwich and I'll give you half of my burger."
WIFEY: "That sounds good but I don't want half of your burger...just cut me a piece."
So our food arrives. I cut my burger into four equal sized pieces. Some people would call that quarters.
So I give Wifey 1/4 of my burger (Remember...she didn't want half)
WIFEY: "That's all you're giving me???"
So let's sum up:
Somehow you have to be a math wizard to figure out how much food to give Wifey. Half is too much, a quarter is too little. Sorry, Baby....but food don't be coming in no fifths or thirds.
