I haven’t posted about the most recent Usual Error workshop yet because of SXSW and getting sick (argh!), but something interesting just happened that I thought might amuse some of my readers.
I was just making up a balance sheet to see where all my finances stood. And I labeled all of my color coding with “Numbers have to go up” (raising the amount of money I make) and “Numbers have to go down” (lowering my monthly bills).
And then I had a funny thought. And I went in. And I changed it. To “Numbers want to go up.” And, “Numbers want to go down.”
And… I don’t think I know how to explain it… but I have a feeling some of you already get it… so… isn’t that… interesting?
