My class was taking a short maths test today - how many takaways could they do in five minutes. Timid Little Boy was working hard, fingers flying in all directions as he tried to work out his answers. Suddenly he dissolved into floods of tears.
Me: What's the matter, TLB?
Johnny: I've run out of fingers, Mrs Clark and I can't do-o-o-o it!
Helpful Little Girl: Never mind, just take your shoes and socks off - then you'll have plenty!
