When life gives you beer
Mel Purs

In what week of the 52 weeks writing contest was this, Mel? Where can I find the other 51? If your important and interesting lesson in counting to 22 wasn’t one of them? In that case, where can I find the other 50? Your writing is straightforward and funny. Go on!

My grandson of 2 years and 8 months counts like this whenever we do a running contest: 1, 2, 5! And starts running. When we are not in any contest he counts like you, but stops at 11. Beyond 11 is the great unknown of his future. Yes, he is already halfway your 22 and only 2 years and 8 months old. May be he secretly is a cat. Not a dog. There are no dogs in our ancestral trees. In any case he has an old soul, methinks.
