A few weeks ago Eric mastered counting to 100. It is a process that, once requested, can not be shut off mid-stream. My mom asked him to count to 100 and when Eric reached the 60s she was impressed enough and decided tried to abort the process – without success.
Recently Eric went for his kindergarten evaluation where they tried to determine his skill level. The teacher asked him “How high can you count?”.
Eric looked at her solemnly and replied “This could take awhile.”
“In that case, just count to 30” replied the teacher, who had probably been down that path many times before.
