I just read your post which is one page back. It made me smile and also remember something my grandpa used to say. Here's a copy of your post:

Somtemees my splling gets me into probblems espcially in math. The teacher would say pie r squrae and I would hve to correct her and let her know everbody knows pie are round.

Grandpa used to say, 'Pie r not square; cornbread r square. Pie r round'. Of course I heard him tell that joke when I was a little girl, long before I ever got to high levels in math. I really didn't understand what he was talking about, but it seemed to please him if I laughed, and so I did! Years later, I thought, 'Oh, THAT'S what Grandpa was talking about!' :D

Little limricks like that helped me in math when I was in school. My math teacher in high school had loads of little verses that he'd say. I just wish I could remember them now.:-/
