An Exchange With My Son

Cakie:  Mommy, Sihad says the number infinity-nine doesn’t exist.

Me: Well, technically, he’s right.  Infinity is like all the numbers in the world.  It keeps going.  You can’t really add nine to that.  What do you mean by infinity-nine, anyway?

C: It’s the last number in infinity.  You know, like twenty-nine, thirty-nine.

    When GMB was little and learned about infinity, he and Wes posited that if there are infinity numbers, then eventually there is a number named EVERYTHING. So there is a number called “Empire State Building” and a number named “Wes” and a number named “infinity-nine”. I think he is right.
