I wonder what the numbers mean. Latitude and longitude? That second one could be an old temperature reading, maybe. Some other scientific recording? A marker of water depth? Trail marker?
"What do you think the numbers mean? Mud height? Temperature?"
"They're printed, not written, that suggests that they're not a measurement. They might be a location."
"Yeah, maybe. Its as good a guess as any."
"They had plastic in 1911, right?"
"I think so. I admit the history of plastic isn't really something I've spent a great deal of time researching."
"A grave oversight in your education."
"You know, up 'till now, it never really came up."
"What are they teaching young people these days?"
"Well me, I'm majoring in sarcasm," says Bina. "With minors in flower arrangement, spite, and decorous behavior."
"It means, like, acting properly and appropriately to the situation. Being humble. That kind of thing."
"I know what 'decorous behavior' means. What I don't understand is how it in any way applies to you.
"Well, to be fair, I'm failing that class."
"Do you want your stick back or not?"
