Il papa' deve sistemare in cantina 72 bottiglie di vino appena acquistate, ma nel riporle negli scaffali ne rompe 13. Quante bottiglie rimangono intatte?
Dad has to arrange 72 bottles that are in his wine cellar. While doing so, he breaks 13. How many does he have left?
This is from a list of teacher-created word problems that she has been working on every night. Love it. I can just imagine my sister's kids coming home with similarly worded problems: If Dad has a case of light beer in the fridge and there are twelve bottles in the case, how many more cases does he need for his fishing weekend that lasts 3 days if he needs 7 bottles a day?
In vino veritas.
Or something like that!
On a more somber note, we are safe at home. While we had quite a scare that had my heart racing like never before when we were bouncing in the bed as the crystal chandeliers sang at 4 am, we are far enough away that we did not sustain any damage or injury. Our house has shaken several more times today and we continue to be equally afraid each time. Our hearts and prayers are with those who are suffering.
