Non sequitur

The kids had the following conversation on the way to school.

The Girl: 20 divided by 10 is 2.  20 divided by 2 is 10.  20 divided by 10 is 2.  20 divided by 2 is 10.
The Boy: You already said that.
TG: I know.
TB: Then why’d you say it again?
TG: You can count on your fingers if you want.  Or your toes.

TG: If you count on your fingers and toes you’ll get 20, cuz that’s how many you have.  Unless you count your friends’ toes, then you’ll have more.
TB: I know, but I don’t need to count on my fingers.
TG: But you can count on your toes if you want to.
TB: I thought you were going to say fingers.
TG: I know.  Or you could count on someone else’s toes.
TB: I’ve never had beer before, but I’ve had something that’s in beer. ROOT BEER!


I couldn’t make this stuff up if I wanted to.
