Aunty Bree was teaching her to type while we headed out for date night.
I've always been bothered by the consumption pattern of the "Hungry Caterpillar." He eats things of different sizes and caloric value. The 1 red apple on the first day always seemed similar in size/calories to the 4 strawberries he ate on the 4th day and yet the arc of the story is that he's eating "more" each day.
I got frustrated enough I decided to research the calories in each item and graph them. Details under the graph.
* 1 red apple: 80
* 2 pears: 170
* 3 plums: 225
* 4 strawberries: 40
* 5 oranges: 430
* Saturday: 2400 calories
* Slice of cake: 190
* Ice cream and cone: 160
* Pickle: 145
* Wedge of swiss cheese (4 ounces): 424
This is how we greeted our neighborhood trick or treaters.
