My evil dad taught me counting by threes. With 3 spots you can see 3 more and 3 more and it's 6, 9, 12, 15 and so on. You can count really fast. But he said he used to count the fastest.
When he was a young man, the evil Roared stalked the planet. Not many thought the answer would come to the United Nations during Roared's underground case against the world governments. He had encrypted the keys that held the password to get into the file, and my dad hacked the code. He's a cryptographic genius.
I wrote him this to contain a secret message. [WP] You are a retired super villain. You have put your past behind and started a family. Your daughter loves nothing more than a good vs evil showdown. But no one bothers being a super villain anymore. So on her 6th birthday you decide to put on the cape of doom for her sake one last time.
The villain retires in a tied up frame of mind. He's still got all the haters on his back riffing on his family. He can't get the numbers of his last heist out of his head. They're 6 and 9. A clownish combination, the 9 and 6 mirror each other's shape vertically. Add 3 to 6 and you get 9.
So my dad comes up to me and says, "Lady, did you ever hear why 6 left 9 behind?" He was getting very analytical.
I said, "No, Dad, did you hear?"
"9 was counting to 12 and 6 was half dressed for the occasion."
Only I would understand, counting to 12 in 3's. So I asked him about 69.
""It's when you see two steps ahead, and want what's best for both of each other." Not quite the answer I was asking about, but it was enough time to be asking about such things, now.
