First up I would just like to say I FINALLY GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And since graduation was a few days ago, a lot of my friends have been hosting graduation parties. Of course there was the usual bloodsugar swings that accompanies the combination of sugary and fatty foods, but I don't want to bore yall with a long story about that. I'll just go straight to the point (to avoid this post being as long as my last one) I am awesome at estimating.
A few days ago one of my friends had a pool party and had a giant vase filled with skittles at the door. If you could guess the closest without going over then you get to keep them all. I put in a guess of 1500 and dove into the pool. A few hours later, the party was about to end so the host of the party decided to announce the winner. The actual amount was 1583, and of course, I win. I literally yelled "What the HELL am I going to do with 1583 skittles?!" I bring the vase home and put it on the kitchen table, where it will stay for the next few years as I slowly eat them.
Then today I went to another party (and this time I brought a super soaker :D ) and there was another jar full of candy. This party had pretty much the same people as the last one, and they were all laughing that they wouldn't let me win again. We all put in our guesses and the host starts looking at them. I was in another room and heard him yell "Oh my god Tim... not again!" I guessed 425 this time, and the actual amount was 483. I won ANOTHER giant thing of candy.
Now I have enough candy to last me through college. I guess its time to bring on the low bloodsugars?
My sister did ring up a good point though, maybe having to guess carbs for so long makes estimating other things easier?
