Pacifist

So limejelly’s in town, taking the opportunity of a conference at UC Riverside to hang out with us.  I told him that #2 had just the other day successfully counted 6 objects (it’s one thing to be able to repeat the words “one, two, three… twelve”, but it’s quite another to actually coordinate your mind and finger to correctly count.)

So he decided to put him on the spot; limejelly opened his fingers one at a time, and #2 counted correctly “one, two, three, four, five”.  Then the tricky part; out came the thumb of the other hand.  “One.”  Thinking very quickly, limejelly countered with a lone thumb from the original hand.  “Two”.  Cool!  This way we could make it all the way to ten!  Out comes an index finger, and #2 says “No guns!”

  1. The weather’s hot enough for sandals over here – I could maybe see if RubeRad can count past ten yet!

  2. (hi from sunny Riverside!)

  3. (hi from before-the-sun-is-up San Diego! ugh!)

  4. This is too funny. I love it.

  5. I finally got hold of some Mountain Dew. The box came with 24 cans, I put 5 in the refridgerator, one of which went in the freezer compartment. How many hours’ sleep will I get tonight?

  6. You mean because you drank the other 19 cans, or because the one in the freezer is going to explode in the middle of the night?

  7. Lateral thinking, huh? Go to the top of the class and *jump off* :-) Wish me luck…
