ALLOW ME TO IMPART ON YOU MY TALE OF WOE........
what is THE BAD NUMBER? why can't i stand it? it's all very simple, really....
by nature of THE BAD NUMBER's function, i can't actually say, see, or type the number itself, but if you can count to ten, then surely you can figure it out on your own.
THE BAD NUMBER == THE NUMBER BETWEEN FOUR AND SIX
"hey, wait a minute! isn't 46 your name?"
ding ding ding! you got it! have a cookie four and six are my two safest numbers, eight is a very close third. whether that's the reason it's my name or my name is the reason they're safe is anybody's guess.
the term for this affliction is pentaphobia. it's an OCD thing and a type of specific number phobia--although, in my case, it's less of a phobia and more of an extreme aversion. i go into total freakout mode, i have to very quietly say the number four either 8, 32, or 64 times depending on the severity of the exposure, because that is the only way to keep myself from shrieking like a banshee in the middle of the street . it's easier if everyone with a little bit of sympathy just puts in a tiny bit of effort to use LITERALLY ANY OTHER NUMBER. why does everything have to use THAT number? i get that it's an easy number to count with in groups, but so are ten and two! and if you're making a joke that involves some random number, it isn't THAT random if it's always a multiple of THE BAD NUMBER!!!!
