See cue123smile, you really do have CDD. A very virulent form of it, too. Melody caught it from you.

 

Here is Melody, who only yesterday could calculate a fair fare to pay the troll’s toll by solving high-level circumnavigation equations for warped triangular troll-toll bridges; now, reduced to counting pennies in a kindergarten class for the slow and dim-witted.

 

This is your fault!

Get some treament for your disease, and while you are at it, wipe that 123smile off your face!

NOPE: Geno has just corrected me a dime is 10c thanks Geno.

I am very sorry Cue I am in the slow kindergarten class.  I don't know much yet.   

It is a good thing that I have big kids like you to help me.   :)))

That is very funny.  

Are you really contagious Cue?  Don't worry because I don't think that you are.  Besides you really do not have CDD so you cannot transmit it to me.    

Don't wipe the smile of your face either - I like your smile  :)   

Maybe I caught it off Nauseated.  He probably has not truly gotten over this disease and he is probably still a carrier too.

Note that we can only have an odd number of nickels...

Thus

1, 3, 5, 7, 9 work

Five ways.....!!!!
