One Two Three Four Five – A Katya Tale

Filed under: Family,Humour — Porcupyn @ 9:35 pm

Katya is spending some quality time with her grandparents. Grandma is teaching her nursery rhymes that are either oh-so-20th century, or failed to cross the Atlantic, or have not yet reached Katya for some other reason.

[As narrated by Katya’s Grandma]

Grandma: “One Two Three Four Five Once I caught a fish alive!”

Katya: “Did you really catch a fish, Grandma?!”

Grandma (playing along): “Yes I did.”

Katya: “Was grandpa helping you?”

Grandma (applies boolean logic): “No.”

Katya: “Where was he when you caught the fish?”

Grandma (to use a chess term … pinned, but escapes the check): “He had gone to the temple.”

[a little later, as observed by Grandma]

Katya (in a singsong voice with action): “One Two Three Four Five Six Seven … Once I caught a Swan!”

    I like your compliment, though you obviously flatter me/us. Please note that the categories this post is filed under are “Family” and “Humour,” not “Mensa” or “genes” 😉
