Phobia - Illustration Friday



This picture illustrates that phobic feeling about math I had as a student.
I'd say "I hope you enjoy", like I usually do, but in this case
I hope you *don't* enjoy. Ha ha, just kidding. Please enjoy.

Great drawing, I can totally relate. My scariest math teacher was a huge man named Ziggy.

shall be the first person to say that I actually quite liked math at school? but the picture is great anyway :)

Thsnks everyone! So many of you can relate, it seems!

I didn't mean to knock math at all...just that I wasn't very adept at it in school. Okay, okay, it scared me silly.

I can now balance my checkbook and I feel that math is not evil at all. :) I just personally have a hard time wrapping my *own* brain around a lot of math. But that's not *math*'s fault, or *my* fault! It's just the way it is... ;)
