Random Thought

Do you ever have those moments of unadulterated happiness, when joy bursts forth from you like water from a fountain and you can’t help but laugh from how good it feels?

I had a hard time mastering the multiplication tables we had to remember when we are 8 or so. I just didn’t get the whole multiplication thing and no one had ever bothered to explain it to me. All I was required to do was remember them; memorise them and recite them.

One day, I was walking around the compound trying to recite them and failing terribly and my Dad asked me what I was doing.  I told him. He sat me down in the living room and told me all I had to do was to keep adding the number whose table I was reciting to the last answer I got. For example, 9+9 is 18, 18+9 is 27, 27+9 is 36.

I was elated to finally understand what multiplication really was. I laughed out loud for like a minute because it finally made sense. Thank you Daddy.
