Ralph warns Flora not to pick that thirteenth bean. Everyone knows itÕs unlucky! Now that theyÕre stuck with it, how can they make it disappear? If they each eat half the beans, thereÕs still one left over. And if they invite a friend over, they each eat four beans, but thereÕs still one left over! And four friends could each eat three beans, but thereÕs still one left over! HOW WILL THEY ESCAPE THE CURSE OF BEAN THIRTEEN?!
A funny story about beans, that may secretly be about . . . math! Sometimes you can divide, but you just canÕt conquer (the bean thirteen, that is).
