Nibbling away the plus signs that make up a dull day

The classroom rabbit appeared in a dream eating all the green plus and equal signs the students use for addition manipulatives. It was an extremely vivid dream, to the point that I believed it really happened, and checked the math center the next day. Norton nibbles on the occasional shoe or pant leg, but addition isn't really his cup of tea.

Like many of Phil Gramm's whiners, I feel like the plus signs have been eaten in my household budget, and the equal signs are showing tooth marks. My Albertson's is selling the store brand of milk for $4.99/gallon. I won't carry on, as you can probably sing along with different words to the same song.

Time Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run,
you missed the starting gun.

Pink Floyd (Mason, Waters, Wright, Gilmour)
