My mother asked me to buy something for her. When I brought back her change she counted it and said, "Did you notice how much it was?"
"No, how much?"
"It's 88 p change."
"So it is."
"See, I remember how much you like the number 88."
Blimey, now I've got my mother into my fascination with the numbers 8 and 88.
I would love to 8 you but I don't.
