BETS I MAKE WITH MYSELF

  1. How many students will assemble the components of an assignment without consulting the guidelines?
    Usually around a third.
  2. How many things can I get done before leaving the house in the morning and still make it to carpool on time?
    Typically one less thing than I actually do.
  3. How many times will my daughter's preschool teacher reschedule our check-in conference?
    4 is a safe bet. 3 reschedules so far (since November) and no conference yet this year!
  4. How many messages till my sister-in-law leaves the group text when my mother-in-law gets going?
    The spread is 4 to 10.
