Inch – #JusJoJan Jot #18


Inch is one of those words that, if I look at it too long, it stops making sense.

Inches are the only thing that make sense to me when I’m measuring height. Of course, if I don’t want to do math, feet are important too.

I just realized why my 12 times tables were so important in school. Are they still? In countries other than the U.S., that is.

I’d rather measure snow in inches–four inches sounds much better than ten centimetres.

Inches are about as far away I am from going to bed after a very busy day.

Inch is the prompt word for today, brought to us by John Holton. Thanks, John! Here’s the link to his “inch” post. Drop by and say hi to him, if you haven’t already!

  2. For me, inch sounds better. Centimeter reminds me of centipede.

  3. Sadly it’s only the older people who still use inches in Britain. In my head I’m about thirty five years old, unfortunately as someone who still uses inches the evidence suggests I’m somewhat older.


  4. I still use feet and inches 💜💜


  5. I’m a feet and inches girl. Drives Hubby nuts as he prefers metric.


  6. I am always curious about the point at which we change from only-inches to feet and inches of snow. 12, 13, 16…all inches. I don’t think we start with feet until we hit 24″ It’s kinda like a kid being 18 months old instead of 1 1/2.


  7. Me too! I have my 12-timestable burned into my brain. They taught us a little song for it in the 4th grade and it gets stuck in my head for days sometimes! It really is the most useful one for life in the U.S., though!


  8. In ireland, we measure snow in centimeters, but height in feet and inches! Go figure!
