I’m proud to present the latest instalment of indoctrinating my son to be a programmer.

I was giving the boys a bath when #1 said to #2 “you have 14 toes“, I told him his count is a bit off and he replied: “Fooled you, I counted one toe four times” (what can I say? There’s a reason I’m aiming for programmer not stand-up comedian). I then asked him how many toes he would have counted had he really counted the same one four times and was pleasantly surprised when he immediately answered “13“.

Now anyone can make an OBOE but recognising it at once (before the age of 7), well that shows potential.
