You Do The Math

Simple math tells us that if A is greater than B, and B is greater than C, then A is greater than C.

One could use foods as the variables: if pizza is greater than pot pie, which is greater than cabbage, then always order carry-out before making kimchi.

Or sports teams. [Note: the Detroit Lions are always...always...the C in this equation.]

This math does not, however, apply to people.

I am not greater than you, and we are not greater than them, and they are not greater than us.

We are all...equal.
The simplest math of all.

My entry in the 100 Words Challenge, with the prompt, "greater."

  1. It would be nice if we could all behave that way.

    Oh, and the little qualifier you had to throw in about the Detroit Lions made me chuckle. :)
