Cheetah 6D5

November 5th, 2012 by ninja

As an emerging writer, Tobin is curious about the spelling of his favorite words and asks us many questions. He also goes out on a limb and scribbles little notes to himself. When i found this one in his pocket, i had no idea what the cryptic message could possibly mean. The answer is easy, if your brain works like a Kindergartener: “Cheetahs can run as fast as 65 mph!”
Don’t see it? Cheetah as rough sketch on the left, 6-D-5 pronounces six-dee-five = 65!

    Thanks, guys :)

    Mika wrote a lot of phonetic notes at this age as well, but somehow never applied the technique to sounding out numbers. As an adult, this flexibility took me totally by surprise.
