"Not a floating-point number" WHY?

I have a hard time trying to understand why I get the floating-point error
in this
particular case: I dont't see what's wrong with the list I am trying to
Here it is:

In[1]:=  small=Take[vec,2]

Out[1]:=  { {30.06, 23523}, {56. 38,00005}}

In[2]:=  ListPlot[small]

Then I get the error message:

Graphics::gptn : Coordinate 30.06 in {30.06, 23523} is not a floating-point

Hope someone can explain this to me.

Best regards,

Henning Heiberg-Andersen
