Number of Problems

Today I learned that when you are meeting someone in a new place, make sure you have their phone number!

Mary lives on a large circle.  There are only houses on the outside of the circle.  She lives at #10 in a blue house, she told me .  My GPS took me to #11 and apparently said “close enough!’.  No, there is no blue house nearby.  But I had no phone number for Mary!

Upon closer inspection, the houses are numbered (I kid you not): …7,9,11,13,15,  I drove more and then found the even numbers, farther along the circle!  Whose great idea was THIS?

So I found #10 and it was blue and I found Mary, but along the way I learned to add the phone number to the contacts and directions, in new place!
