I have had two different people on two separate occasions ask if I have been influenced by the book 'The curious incident of the dog in the night time'.
So I got a copy and my partner thought it looked interesting so proceeded to read 18 pages of it. He then suggested we read it together, so that night as he drifted off to sleep I was to read the first 18 pages to catch up to him... well I couldn't stop at 18 pages and continued to read the rest of most of it (he was most put out the next morning when I told him). I have now finished it...
I can see the connection these people made between the book and my work, but I think I just like odd numbers, I like to look at things in threes, fives, sevens, nines etc... but threes especially. At work we have these rows of grape vines and they are numbered and line up with the car parks. I like to park in an odd one. It makes me briefly happier then if it were even. Oh dear that makes me sound a little odd myself.
If you can get a copy I strongly advise you read it. It is a funny thing the mind and it made me realise what a tough world some of us live in.
