Numbers are an obsession for her - a game. She tells me how, rumbling down the road to work each day in her 1963 Falcon, she would add up all the license plate numbers in the car in front.  “I love numbers,” she says.  “I can even taste them. 7 is my favorite. It  reminds me of potato chips… salty like and crunchy as all get out. And 8? Well that one not only tastes like semi-sweet chocolate but also has a chime sort of sound… like a Tibetan gong echoing back from a snow tipped mountain peak.  9 is very sexy. Asymmetrical enough to draw you into its contours - almost dizzying if you were tiny and riding it like a roller coaster.  Takes my breath away!”  What can you say about a sexy human calculator except stand back and let her tell you her story. I ask her if the numbers total up to the same thing forwards and backwards.  She giggles softly and murmurs, “Of course silly.”  While we are chatting, I step closer to her, fascinated.
