Half Truths

How many fingers do I have?

Gosh it is a long time since I drew an outline of my hands.  The crooked fingers make not a pretty picture!

Have you counted yet?

I bet you said ten!

Look again….  I make it ELEVEN!

Counting backward from the left…

Ten, nine, eight, seven six plus the five on the right hand makes ELEVEN!

Granny, I was listening all those years ago and I can hear your laughter right now.

    Ah, lovely memory, Grannymar

    I can definitely remember someone playing that trick on me when I was young and innocent but who it was, I’ve not a clue! 🙄

    Used to turn that one on the pupils…sort of intelligence test!

    It’s on a par with sharing sweets, “There’s one for you, one for me, two for you and, two for me .Three for you and one two three for me…”
