Start of Advent Calender, & How Dilly Counts

Yesterday's scores:
  • Gills: no
  • Simpsons: yes
  • Tesco: yes
  • Nose Hugs Surprizisity Score: 9.5/10
  • Day Score: 8/10
  • Advent Calender pikcher: a book

As yu can see from the abuv, I've added a bit to my daily heading- advent calender pikcher. I opened the ferst day today an it was a pikcher ov a book. Me an Dilly are takin alternate days, she is doing the even numbers. This is becos ov her liking the number two so much. Did I ever tell yu about Dilly's counting method?

Dilly only counts to two. This duzzent mean that she only counts TWO THINGS. No. She counts lots ov things, but calls most ov the numbers "TWO".

Her "logic" (an I yews the term VERY losely) is as follows:

take fer instance this pikcher ov festiv Bears:

seven pandas a-hatting

Now, to you and me, there are seven Bears. But Dilly wud look at this pikcher an count like this:

"One, plus other one, plus other one, plus other one, plus other one, plus other one, plus other one. Hmm... One plus other one is... TWO!"

Apparently all reptile an amphibian types count this way. Dilly says that if everyone counted this way there would be World Peace, as wars are mostly fort wen peopol think somewun has got more than them ov sumthing. An if everywun could only count to two, everyone would hav the same. Except for those who had one, but yu could giv them one of yors, an yu would still hav two.

Wen we asked her about the glaring differences possible in how many things make two, Dilly looked offended, sed that there were big twos and little twos, and sed that this was "Bluddy Obvious". At this point I got lost, cos talk ov big twos was starting to sound rude and I got distracted.

So enyway! This is why Dilly is doing the even numbers, as she gets number two.

(See what I hav to liv with?)

Bye fer now!
