Zero: Before and After

If I put two zeros in front of the number seven, I  think of James Bond. You know 007. 

Zero is a very important number and numerical digit. It fulfills a major role in math. I hate math, but I do know that zeros placed before a number means less cash in my pocket, like $.07 cents, while a zero after a number equals more cash such as $70.  

Zero is slang for zilch or zip. It can also be a temperature reading in upstate New York. In fact, four months ago is was 07 degrees here at night, today it's 70 degrees. Now you're getting the picture as to the importance of zero.

Just to let you know how really important zero is, last week I had $700 in my checking account. Now I have $.07 cents. If anyone would like to send me three zeros after a 10, my zip code is 14609.

Zip on over to Jenny's. You'll be glad you did.

That's my lesson for the day... I never attached such importance to the zero before but rest assured I will now. Hmm if I could remove it from my age I would be happy, very happy.

So, lightly, would that be before or after? How many time must I tell you, it's zeros after a ten. At least three to start.

I can always count on you to come up with something snurtely. In case you wondered what snurtely means, I just made it up.
