It's the girl scout event registration website.

Carry on.

Hopefully there's no correlation.

Now I know, GoDaddy is worse. Waah.

stuff. :D

Is it Thanksgiving break yet?

I don't know if we could get away with it though, because they have a brown roof so their designated colors are all earth-tone. We have a blue roof so our designated trim colors are greens and blues.

"Hmmm..." she said. Then she looked up at me. "Did you try them with a belt?" she offered.

I was just waiting for her to say.."Did you cinch 'em?"

Rocky is wearing my cleats for soccer.

The child is NINE.

We have X adult t-shirts for which we need Y oz. of liquid dye per shirt.

Z kids t-shirts, which require Y-1 oz. of liquid dye per shirt.

How many liquid ounces do we need?

If we have 3 colors of dye and want an equal amount of each color, how many ounces of each color do we need?

Here's where it gets confusing. To mix the dye properly you need A ounces by weight of dye for each B ounces of dye by volume. The ounces-weight vs. ounces-water thing really throws him off. I guess we could do it in metric.

So.. A oz (wt.) of dye powder + C oz. (volume) of urea for every B oz. (volume) of liquid dye mix: how much dye powder and urea do we need for each color?

And:

We need to have the shirts dyed, rested, washed and dried by 6:00 PM Tuesday.

We can fold 4 shirts at a time, at 10 minutes per shirt.

We can soak 8 shirts at a time, each shirt must soak for 5 minutes.

We can dye 4 shirts at a time, at 10 minutes per shirt.

Each shirt must rest for at least 8 hours before rinsing.

We can rinse 3 shirts at a time, at 5 minutes per rinse.

We can launder 10 shirts at a time, at 40 minutes per load.

We can dry 8 shirts at a time in the dryer, at 60 minutes per load.

We can also dry 6 shirts at a time on the line, at 4 hours per shirt.

I am not ironing shirts. Forget it.

What is the absolute latest time we can start dyeing shirts and still finish on time?

He's kind of excited about his "real-world" story problems. :D
