I've actually [U]disliked[/U] prime numbers ever since elementary school. A few days ago, I was watching TV with a friend, who happened to have the TV on volume level 23. I actually asked her to turn it up or down a notch, so that it wouldn't be on a prime number.

You casually misread something with an acronym in it.
Just today, I read CRT as Chinese Remainder Theorem instead of Cathode Ray Tube.
