I’m A 3, But Not a 1+2

So here’s a really bad math metaphor:

Everyone can look at me and see 3.

They assume my 3 comes from 1+2. Nice and simple.

But really, they just see 3.

I’m not always 3.

But when I am I am never just 1+2.

It’s always, okay I am not good at math, it’s always so much more. Lots of weird symbols nobody else understands.

It’s an awful metaphor if you suck at math like I do, but it’s just so accurate. Even in the weird abstract puff-of-air mess that I’ve tried to explain.

Oh well.

I guess some things can only be explained to those who want to understand enough to try over and over.
