A Budding Mathematician

The flat we’re staying in has a garbage disposal unit in the kitchen sink which Daniel has shown a little more interest in than I would like. Today I had it running and he came over to watch so I told him never to put his fingers down there or it would chop them off. He replied “like Granddad”. For those who don’t know Granddad, he only has two fingers on one hand as a result of a farm accident when he was a child. I asked Daniel how many fingers he has on one hand. He counted “1, 2, 3, 4, 5!” so I asked “how many fingers did Granddad lose?”. He was quiet for a little bit studying his fingers very intently then replied “1, 2, 3!”. We may have another mathematician in the making.
