When Presented with Four Objects and Instructed to Count Them:

February 5, 2010

Oscar: three, four, six, nine!

James: one, two, lots!

James clearly inherited his math gene from me.

    I strongly feel the need to interrupt here. “One, two, lots” is not an inconsistent method of counting. In fact, numerous groups of human societies count this way – these folks as an example.

    So I must protest any implication that he has sub-par numeracy abilities. I will leave considerations of math genes open to interpretation.

    Harrumph.
