Evening scene:

Am cooking, and various characters are all studiously working on their respective academic levels.

Munchkin comes to show me her completed work. Her math sheet had this question:

“There are 2 red blocks, 3 green blocks and 4 blue blocks on the floor. How many blocks are there on the floor?”

She had a neat “9” next to it.

I say: Good job.

She: *smiles large*

I: So tell me, how did you do that?

She: * makes those large eyes even rounder, and with a smug expression on her face* By Math.

I: haha, no, munchkin, I meant how did you calculate that? How did you come up with the number 9?

She: *throws the clipboard down, thrusts her tiny fingers at me, wiggles them furiously*: By my fingers!

..and that’s how the ball rolls.

    • See, as Bhel would attest, that is an improvement over either of our capabilities. We usually have a hard time counting upto 3 most of the time (I can do 2, he can do 3). Constant inebriation has that effect, allegedly.

  1. HA! If you lived in my school district, Muchy would have to write a one paragraph/page essay on how she came upon the number. Anything would be correct as long as it was preceded by this essay! Phew. I am soooo glad that the younger one is almost done with middle school. This concept of mediocrity being very acceptable is impossible to understand.

I'd love to hear what you have to say, do write back!
