The new math

Lucas educated me of some "new math" concepts yesterday.

- 5 and 1 plus 6. After he said this, I said, "that's right, five plus one equals six". He insisted I was wrong and the way he said it was right.
- 4 is next to 5, but it's more than 5, and it's even more than 18
- he is 3 and 7 quarters and his friend Arlo is 4 and 19 quarters

I guess I need to get up to speed on the new math.
