There is a span of about a half an hour each morning between the time that I wake up and the time that someone actually comes around to get me up and out of bed. Sometimes I use those captive moments to conceptualize a new blog entry or to come up with some crazy scheme for the day. Most of the time I just lie there and do math in my head.

That’s right, math.

I am not talking about any ground-breaking “how do you like them apples” kind of math, mind you, just your typical, run of the mill arithmetic problems. You know, stuff like long division, multiplying a pair of two digit numbers, and deciding whether or not the number on the clock radio is divisible by 3, 6, or 9. (My typist, math teacher extraordinaire “The Hen”, is offering bonus points for anyone who can explain those particular divisibility rules in the comments below.)

However, all that being said, I had a thought a few mornings ago that was sort of math related and sort of not. I imagined myself holding a digital stopwatch in my hand and how cool it would be if I was able to stop it at exactly twelve hours, thirty-four minutes, fifty-six seconds and seventy-eight hundredths of a second. For those of you who are more in tune with your numbers as numbers, that would look like this: 12:34:56.78.

Pretty crazy, huh?

You can become my personal geek in hero’s clothing if you are able to provide me with photographic proof of my rather unique stopwatch number. Good luck!

Pecked by The Hen again.

The sum of the digits must be divisible by that number.

In the case of 6, I think it’s a little more complicated like:

The number must be evenly divisible by both 2 AND by 3 .

Do I get my bonus points?

BTW: Who is “The Hen”?

6: is divisable by 2 and 3

9: the numbers added together equal 9 (27- 2+7=9)
