    It turns out there is an answer of sorts. Eleven and twelve were originally phrases equivalent to “one-left” and “two-left”, from when people couldn’t count without their fingers. (Three-left was apparently too big a step for most people until some genius invented “three-teen”. “To three-teen and beyond!”)

    I thought it was because the person who named the numbers had twelve fingers.

    Learn “Chisanbop”, a Korean method of counting on your fingers from 1-99. https://sciencing.com/finger-math-basic-addition-counting-4861020.html

    She doesn’t have the highlights in her hair to ask for a supervisor.

    I must be losing my mind. Ruthie is making perfect sense to me today and raising a very important question.

    Speaking to a supervisor, if it’s like Direct Tv , you won’t be any better off.

    It’s amazing what you can learn in the comments section of GoComics!

    For that matter, why not threeteen instead of thirteen and fiveteen instead of fifteen? Plus I’ve always been a little confused about where eleven and twelve fit. We have 10’s (0-10), teens (13-19), twenties (20-29), etc. Where do 11 and 12 fit?
