Today’s aesthetic: appending parenthetical numerals to written quantities in contexts that absolutely don’t demand that degree of formalism.

#especially if they’re informal or slangy quantities#like writing ‘a couple (2)’

its even better if they are vague quantities like several (5) or if they are vague quantities that you would think are a certain number but are wildly different like a few (30)
