Now ,the VOA Special English Program--Words and Their Stories.Last week,I told about the No.1.Today,I will tell about expressions using other Numbers.

Some problems are difficult to solve,but there are a lot of number expressions that can help.For example,if we put two and two together,we might come on with a right answer.We know that two heads are better than the one,it is always better to work with another person to solve the problem.Sometimes,they are know two ways about it,some problems have only one solution.But you can not be two eyes of these.But with any luck ,we could solve the problem in two shakes with an lamb's tale .We get to have a lot of answers quickly and easily.Sometimes,we can kill two birds with one stone,that is we can complete two goals with only one effort or action.But we must remember that two wrongs do not make a right if someone done something bad to you.You should not do the same to him.If you were going out with your girlfriend or boyfriend,you do not want another friend to go along on that date.You can just say to your friend,two is company and three is crowed.

When I was young child in school,I had to learn the three arts.This is important skills are reading ,writing and arithmetic.These are three words that do not start with the letter on,but they have the sound of all.
My teachers use to give three cheers when I did well on them.They gave a prize an approval with the job well done.Some of my friends were confused and did not understand the schoolwork.They were assistant sevens in fact  they did not care if they finished high school.They thought little difference between the two choices ,six one have a dozen the other,that was their position.
But they were really happy when they completed their studies and graduated from school,they were in seven heaven they were on crowed nine.Nine times out of them ,student who do well in school ,find good jobs,some work in an office,doing the same thing every day.At  nine to five jobs ,you do not have to dress the rest of nines or wear your best clothes for this kinds of word.

Last year, one of my friends applied for a better job at her office,I did not think she would get it.I thought she had a hundred to one shot at the job.Other people at the office thought the chances were a million to one.One reason is that she had been caught catching forty weeks at the office.She slept at her desk and shot experience during the day.But her surpervisor appointed her to the new job at eleven hour at the very last minute and I guess her lucky number came up
