Counting the bottles of beer

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

 The first week of April brings a welcomed break to students in our school district.  During the nearly two weeks off, they get to spend time thinking those deep thoughts that usually command a young student’s mind.  You know, things like “Uh, what do you want to do today?”
  Thinking about the present can be a daunting task, especially if you make the mistake of thinking about something that actually takes neural energy.  Why not spend that time doing something more comfortable, less complicated, more productive.  For example, how about counting to fifty thousand?
  Counting to fifty thousand, productive? Well, I can think of worse things to do.  But for now, let’s just count to fifty thousand.  I’ll start you off and when you’ve finished, you can keep reading.
  One two three four five six.  Is that enough to get you going?  OK, a few more, but I can’t hang out with you all day walking you through this task.  Seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen.  
  Yeah, I know, I know.  Why are eleven and twelve such weird words?  And what’s with thirteen and fifteen?  Why not threeteen and fiveteen?
