Whenever my mother left the house, she had say, "Where's my hat? I'm going!" I didn't understand. "But you haven't got a hat" I'd say.

Whenever I had wrinkles in my socks my mother would say, "Take the bagels, out of your socks." I didn't understand. I'd say, "I haven't got any bagels in my socks."

Whenever we sang in school, "There is a green hill far away without a city wall." I didn't understand. I'd say, "Green hills don't have city walls."

Whenever our history teacher, lost our temper she had say, "Great Scott! You're for the high jump!" I didn't understand. Who was Scott? Why was he great? And why did we have to do the high jump?

As we leave for nursery school in the morning, I say to my four-year-old daughter, "Where's my hat? I'm going!" And she says, "But you haven't got a hat."

I look at her socks and say, "Take the bagels out of your socks" and she says, "I haven't got any bagels in my socks."

Along the way I sing, "There is a green hill far away without a city wall" and she says, "Why is the green hill, got a city wall?"

And when I say goodbye to her I say, "Great Scott! You're for the high jump!" And she says, "No I'm not!"
