Hundred, er…Thousand


Have you heard of OMG facts? I'm not sure how I came across them, but I did. Now, I follow them on twitter. Last night they posted this little fact:
Counting up from 1, the first number that will use the letter "A" is "thousand". #omgfacts
Occasionally I like to share these little things with Sean, but I always present them in the form of a question. So I said to him: "Couting up from one, what is the first number that will use the letter 'A'?" This is how the rest of the conversation went:
Sean: Um, a hundred.
Me: A Hundred? H-U-N-D-R-E-D? There is no 'a' in there.
Sean: Well, what is it?
Me: A Thousand
Sean: You're wrong, it's a hundred… A hundred, that comes before A thousand.
Me: {Laughing uncontrollably}
Me again: {Tears because I can't stop laughing}
Him: (Realizing what he said) Well, it wasn't that funny.
Um… yes it was.
