Learn Those Numbers

The teacher asked one of her young students if he knew his numbers.

"Yes," he said. "I do. My father taught me."

"Good. What comes after three."

"Four," answers the boy.

"What comes after six?"


"Very good," says the teacher. "Your dad did a good job. What comes after ten?"

"A jack," says the little boy.

    LOL!! This happened here, when my mom came into town to visit. She played several rounds of the card game "war" with my son, and he would later be counting, substituting "jack" for "eleven"! My son is a punch line! (Of course, I already knew that.)
