kids toes feet

80 digits (40 pictured)

19 July 2010

Like many jobs around the house, cutting the kids’ fingernails and toenails is one that falls to me by default.  Perhaps because it is such a thankless task, I avoid it as long as I can.  Then someone gets inadvertently clawed, and with a guilty conscience I line them up for the overdue trim.  During the last round it occurred to me that

4 kids x (10 fingers + 10 toes) = 80 grubby nails

Moderately gross.

A good example of a task best thought of one step (or digit) at a time.
