Yesterday we walked. You told me: "I wish I had counted all the steps we took, multiplied them by four, and then that's how much our feet was worth yesterday."

"By how many steps they took?"

"Like that, yes, but more of an imaginary distance, an imaginary amount of people they have passed, earth they have met."

"If it's imaginary then don't you think you shouldn't have to define and box it in a number? You can just say 'many'."

"We took many steps?"

"That's what we did, yes. A number confines it."

"Sometimes worth is a tricky concept."
