The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Today, my lovely friends from upstairs invited me to Chinese food them with.

We went, we had a good time, we ate yummy food.

Then, we went up to the register to pay.

The Asian young man behind the counter said to my friend in front of me, "$10.66."

1066? Why does that sound familiar?

Then I remembered, and said to no one in particular, "1066 was the year of the Battle of Hastings."

(Two posts in a row featuring the Bayeux Tapestry? What is this?)

For a few moments, nothing happened, and then the Asian young man said,

"People say that all the time."



Actually, my initial thought was, "How often is $10.66 the total?"

But it can't be all the time. You know?

And of all the times the total is $10.66, how often do the people know that's the year of the Battle of Hastings?

Or if they know, how often do they think of it when they hear "$10.66"?

Or if they think of it, how often do they say it out loud?

You know?


  1. That is really funny. I know nothing about the Battle of Hastings, but my first thought to his response was, "What dish do they serve that's always $10.66?"

  2. I just want you to know I thought of it. Thank you AP European History.
    P.S. I love your blog.
