special "mathy" twist on a popular Taylor Swift song!
Follow along with the lyrics shown below
(The chorus lyrics appear in the video.)
I close my eyes, the flashback starts, I'm sitting there
In my little chair.
See the ones, see the twos and threes
See the fours, see the fives
So long ago.... little did I know
That you were math, you were my future
My daddy said stay away from counting on your fingers
Borrowing came next,
I was begging you please go slow....
And I said: (CHORUS)
I moved on; it was multiplication
Then on to the dread long division
Close my eyes; I can do this if I try.
You were math, you were my future
My daddy said stay away from counting on fingers
Algebra came next,
I was begging you please go slow...
And I said: (CHORUS)
Number line save me,
They try to tell me how to feel
The struggle's difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, I'll make it out of this mess
It's a math story
Everybody say YES.
I was calculating
Wondering, could the answer be found?
My faith in me was fading
When will I figure it out? (CHORUS)
And I said
Math, you're wonderful
I never have to be alone
I love you, and that's all I really know
You be the plus and I'll be the minus
It's a math story, everybody say.... YES
and the awesome student back up singers!

1) Tell us, what is your favorite kind of music?
2)What’s your favorite food?
Cuban food is REALLY good. Picadillo, Ropa Vieja, platanos, maduros, arroz con leche, frijoles negros, tostados, and too many more to mention.Of course cafe con leche.
My standard poodle's name was "Tinta", (black ink in Spanish, but I guess maybe you knew that). I had to send her to my sister to live because every night when we came home from work, my husband would say "Can we get rid of the dog, can we get rid of the dog, can we get rid of the dog....."I got SICK of it. So she got a sedative and was put on a plane to Florida where she lived out her days happily with another dog, Bershey and two cats, Fluffy and Flash. She died a couple of years ago at the ripe old age of 15.
4)Favorite movie or T.V. show at the moment?
Hmmmmmm. At the moment. Well, at any moment, my favorite movie is "The Commitments" (again, ask Mr. Costner). But at the moment, I guess it would have to be the TV series "Mad Men." There's always "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report."
A quiet place by a river where I can sit on a rock and listen to
the water rushing by.
