Abstract / Synopsis
When a young mathematician faces the prospect of a date, all kinds of mathematics ensue. Here we explore her innovative way to keep the conversation going through rolling dice to decide which conversation starter to utilize. In the course of our exploration, we solve an interesting generating function problem.
