183: Snacktime Rules
Title text: I am not making this rule up. Although my mom wants you all to know it made perfect sense at the time.
Nerdiness and science often go hand-in-hand, but Randall feels that a lot of his nerdiness was actually influenced by his mother. If Randall really had this random math-based rule during his childhood, as the title text implies, he would only have been allowed a snack in his room before bed at ages: (2), 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, (20 and 23).
- My dad was always the one who taught me about science, but looking back, I'm starting to realize how much my nerdiness was influenced by my mom.
- [A woman and a child are talking.]
- Child: Mom, can I have a snack in my room before bed?
- Mom: No, Dear. You know you only get that privilege when your age is one less than a multiple of three.
