How many apples – A Katya Tale

Filed under: Family,Humour — Porcupyn @ 10:22 pm

Scene (and heard) the other day at home

[begin loop]
Mrs. Porcupyn: Katya, if you have three apples and you ask me for two more apples, how many apples do you have?
Katya: Three.
[end loop]

Once the above loop played over twice and tinges of exasperation started creeping into Mrs. Porcupyn’s voice, I had to swing into action.

Porcupyn: Katya, if you have three apples and you ask Amma for two more apples and she gives them to you, how many apples do you have?

Katya [After pondering over the matter at hand for the appropriate amount of time a kid her age would/should]: Five.
