Throwback Thursday: The Power of Two

A day like today . . . just calls for a song!

 

Today is a special day. 

A day with super-powers. 

Or, at least, The Power of Two!

Anniversary2

The funny thing about being married to a math-minded, science-y kind of guy . . . is that he thinks about special days in whole new - and altogether unexpected - ways. 

I mean, I was just thinking about it being our 32nd anniversary (how is that even possible????). . . but Tom thinks about it as 25.

Yeah.

Like as in . . . an exponent!

Because, after all . . . 25. . . is just another way of saying. . . 32.

Kind of romantic.  In that math-y, science-y way.  Because this anniversary . . . is a Power of Two anniversary!

What does that look like, exactly, in an exponential kind of way?

Well.  We got married in 1981.  So that's the start.

20 = 1 (don't ask; it's a weird math thing far beyond my understanding)

And here we are, in 1982.
