Barbie, rises, and runs

Those of you who are eagle-eyed might wonder if there's an extra comma or two in this headline, and the answer is a decided "nope." Rises are the parts of stairs that rise up. Runs are the length of the treads that you walk up. Bill is working on the construction of the front steps, and the process always reminds me of the amount of math involved in construction. And, math makes me think of the 1992 Barbie who said, "Math class is tough!" I always remember it incorrectly, as do others, as "Math is hard!" Yes, Barbie, math class is tough, but if you apply yourself, you just might to live your dreams one day and be able to build your own house.
