A couple geeky stories to throw your way, from my favorite source for occasional science news, Inkling Magazine:
The first, I read a few weeks ago, about miscarriage. Very informative, and full of stats that aren't talked about. And, as any good article does, the first sentence caught me: "After the fun part of baby making comes the hard part."
Yesterday's article was a mathematical description of the progression of Love in a relationship. I started to tell Josh about it, and he cut me off with "I never took Calculus." Good thing, I guess. He was the first one to say I Love You in our relationship. After reading this article, I thought about how I've continued to fall more and more in love with him, even when I thought it wasn't possible anymore. We're still silly and crazy about each other, sixteen months into marriage. I expect we'll be the same way in 16 years, and 60 years. And, although I did take calculus in high school & college, I'm not about to find the first and second derivative of the curve describing the relationship.
