Day thirty six: trente six fois

I like the number thirty six in French - they use 'trente six' like how we would use tonnes, or millions, to signify a lot of something. I don't know why they settled on 36, or what happens when they are describing something which actually happened thirty six times, but I like how a specific number is used to represent a non-specific amount. So I started writing something in French, and typed the words as they came into my head. It doesn't really mean anything.

Je t'ai dis trente-six
Fois, qu'il y ont trente-six lunes
Dedans trente-six boites.
