I have hidden the zero because I have a thing for that number. For one (pun intended) thing, it’s the number of times we should get divorced. Zero is also the number of times we should ever malign, make fun of or bully anyone.
It is also the number of times we should have a hangover while puking in the golden throne. It’s the number of times we should ever get involved in a parental argument while using foul language. Definitely the number of times it should be about us instead of the people who deserve it.
How about the number of times we should lose our temper while taking it out on someone who doesn’t deserve it? Zero would be nice for all the times we threw trash out the truck window while driving. Zero would be a great number for all the times we shot and killed a wild animal without needing the meat to stay alive.
Zero would be more than enough times to lose your temper at a child and watch the fear and disappointment show through their eyes – the same for spouses. A single time should be enough for looking in a mirror and being totally disgusted at the reflection. Zero would be a better number, but no one is perfect.
I think it is obvious why the number zero is never shown in everyday counting. Zero times is not attainable in life because it has no value. It only has the value we give to it. When you look at all the things we humans shouldn’t do, zero suddenly has tremendous value.
Zero should be first on our bucket list even though it is not attainable in the real world. The effort to get to 0 times is a noble goal indeed. One thing is for sure – the look in the mirror will be far less traumatic.
I’m just saying,
