Marilynne Smith told how she prepared "page counts" by guesstimating the stack
of paper.

Yep. And after six months, I started to do it exactly the same way you did.
Nobody cared. (Well, one person -would- have, but I never got caught.)
The guesses were "close enough for government work" (hey, now that I think
about it, it -was- government work), and my productivity went up because I
wasn't spending time counting doggone pieces of paper.

It's not the right way, but sometimes it's what ya gotta do.
