None other than our Little Fayoumis.
He tried to add numbers and sharks, you see.
So we played with this for a while. One shark plus one is one shark and one! One shark plus two sharks and one is three sharks and one!!
One shark plus a shark and an octopus is two sharks and an octopus.
I told him that he was learning a really cool kind of math, and its name was algebra, and furthermore, that he was learning it a lot sooner than I was, since I had started learning it at twelve.
He rocks. He really does.
