I prefer the numeral... always... and I'll use it every time. A number isn't a word.

That's the way my dyslexic/OCD brain sees it: It's "1" not "one"... I don't care what any writer snob says, I'm writing it as "1." I get what the rule is, but I'm gonna ignore it so that it LOOKS correct to my brain.

ps... No one's ever complained about my numbers. "Bruh, it should be "one" not "1." My response would be "HAHAHA! Fukk off. Not happening! What's your next note?"

Welcome back, Gucci. I was getting worried about you.

Ha! Thanks! Was just moving. Previous to that it was my birthday, so I split town for a week to party.

And honestly, they need to step up their game. It's been a while since they wrote anything on my level.
Homer is more my level, drinks beer, watches TV, is late to work, has a strange boss, etc. I don't know about those other two guys.

Agreed. Tho, sometimes you might prefer the actor to say "twenty-twenty," some dipshit might mess it up and say, "two-thousand-twenty." haha.

Welcome back and Happy ****ing Birthday, dude.

And saying that story "quick" was just not in the cards.

I guess I like words, lots and lots and lots of them, too much.

I somehow don't see eight in original post. It's like when they ask you how many T's are int he sentence and there are 6 and I can only see 4.

So you're 1 out 8 kids? Or you have 8 kids?

That's why I prefer 8. I'll read right past eight.
