I have always preferred odd numbers to even. I think most people prefer even numbers because they are symmetrical and clean, easily divisible by two, with no ragged ends and every digit paired with another. However, I think of even numbers as being leaderless like two columns without a captain at their head. The number eleven, for example, has two columns five digits in length marching two by two behind their leader, Capt. Eleven.

Even numbers lack leadership, and, as a result, I always prefer odd numbers. I can't wait to turn 35.
