Have you ever seen the Monty Python skit about the Holy Hand Grenade? In the skit, the instructions go like this before “lobbing” the grenade.

Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.

Of course, the king gets it wrong, and says, “One, two, five” and has to be corrected.

Saige is learning to count right now, and for some reason she doesn’t remember “four.” So everything she counts goes one, two, three, five. It makes me laugh every time because of this silly skit.
