NO PUZZLE HERE!
I was working at a jigsaw puzzle with
a kindergartener and a third grader. I'm pretty good with puzzles up
to a hundred pieces, able to appear a genius, in fact, to small
children. Beyond that size, though, when dozens of pieces are the same
color and roughly the same shape, I get completely flummoxed. This particular
puzzle was right at my limit.
In the midst of our silent concentration,
the kindergartener suddenly piped up, "I wish my dad was here!
He knows more than all of you! "
To which the 3rd grader promptly responded,
"Oh? Does he know his times tables?"
Smiling with enormous self-satisfaction,
she added, "I do!"
