I'm still trying to heal the fractional parts of my 4th grader self. Over the last few years I've made progress:
- Ten + years ago: fractions made me slightly nauseous, rendering me unable to think.
- Five years ago: although no longer causing nausea and palpitations, fractions did require a rather strong antiperspirant
- Today: while deoderant still comes in handy, a little voice in my head now does a mini "wahoo" when I hear someone utter the word "fractions."
