why is it that some things are packaged in strange numbers? like today, i resupplied our floor's kitchen with plastic forks, as no one else seemed able nor eager enough to walk down a floor to do so. i grabbed a package and trudged back upstairs, thinking there are 30, maybe 40 forks in a package, but no. it's 51. not even 50. what's with the odd number, people? and who really wants place settings for 51? what are we, from mars or something?
