Headful of Numbers

We're just back from Texas visiting grandparents for their 45th anniversary.  Greta made everyone feel young by announcing 25 years instead of 45.

Later she was singing 100 Bottles of Bear on the Wall, but a la Calvin (& Hobbes) she started with one trillion.

Greta:  One trillion bottles of beer on the wall, one trillion bottles of beer.  Take one down pass it around--  
I don't know what comes after that.

Me: Nine hundred ninety-nine billion, nine hundred ninety-nine million, nine hundred ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred ninety nine.

Grandma: That was a mouthful!

Greta:  No.  That was a headful.

Gina, thanks! I had to lie in the mud to get it. I can tell the girls are getting teenish as they were saying, "Mom get up! People are going to think you are weird lying in the mud!"
