ALGE-WHAT?

(got this one from Scalzi's By The Way)

Einstein Blackboard: (write your own messages)
Its no secret that I have always hated math... especially Algebra!  I am of the belief that numbers are for counting and letters are for spelling.  The only time the two should be mixed is when you are actually spelling the number, like the number 1 is spelled 'one'.  That's it.  None of that (x² + y³ = z).  That's just crazy.  That's not math, that's jumbled up refrigerator magnets!  But I did take the time and effort to learn 1 (one) formula, and it is with great pride that I share this mathematical brilliance with the late great Einstein. 

X + Y = WTF

It's Greek to me!  I got by by the seat of my pants in Algebra 1 and 2_all because my father insisted I be a doctor....made me take 2 years of Latin too but I liked that (letters)   HA!  I am a wife and mother of four sons with a degree in Fine Arts.  Boy would he be surprised!  Sometimes I think I would like to try taking one of those high school type extension courses just to see if I could ever grasp it.  But like you, I understand letters.  I understand numbers, but who was the nut that decided to scramble them together?  Ta-ta for now, joy
