Jamie’s secret arms
“OK Jamie,” I announced, “here’s today’s question!” I could feel the excitement behind me building.
“How many arms do you have? TWOOOOO.........or four?”
Jamie pondered briefly, before taking a deep breath and bellowing at the top of his voice:
I was devastated – as the now massed ranks of children around us shouted out in unison that the answer (for them at least) was actually two.
I swear I could feel the grins of the other mums and dads burning through my back.
Perhaps White Jnr will be more of a wordsmith than a mathematician.
