The day’s lesson in Mr Thomas’s kindergarten class was numbers. He wrote a “1” on the board.
“Who knows what number this is?” he said. Several hands went up.
“Michael?” he said.
“That’s a “1,” Michael replied.
“Very Good. And who knows what comes after 1?” Fewer hands went up.
“Margaret?” Margaret replied “2.”
“Very good. And what comes after 2?” Only a couple hands were raised. “Yvonne?”
“3,” Yvonne replied. “Very Good,” said Mr Thomas.
“Now, what comes after 3?” she continued. Only Pat’s hand was raised. “Pat?”
“4 comes after 3!” she said, enthusiastically.
“Very good.” Mr Thomas replied. Pat continued, “And after that comes 5, 6 and 7.”
“That’s right. Very good, Pat!”
“And after that, 8, 9 and 10!”
“Impressive!” said Mr Thomas. “Where did you learn your numbers?”
“My father taught me,” Pat answered.
“Well, you have a very caring and attentive father,” Mr Thomas said.
“Yes, he’s the best!” was Pat’s reply.
“Did he teach you what comes after 10?”
“Yes,” Pat said. “Jack, Queen, King and Ace.”
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? ‘Love. Where does it come from? Who lit this flame in us? No war can put it out, conquer it. I was a prisoner. You set me free.’
Answer: The Thin Red Line! Pvt. Jack Bell (Ben Chaplin) says this in narration to the woman he left behind when he came to fight the war. This was an extremely powerful movie, much better than ‘Saving Private Ryan’, in my opinion.
