Lincoln: Wanna know how high I can count?
Lincoln: Okay, I will show you. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5…..
(a few minutes later)
…299. 300. 301. 302. 303. 304. Mom…Do you want to know how much I can really count to? Okay. A thousand. No! A million! It just takes too long so can I just tell you that I can count to a million instead?
(later that night)
Me: Lincoln, how high did you say you can count.
Lincoln: A thousand. I mean a million!
Me: What comes after a million?
Lincoln: A million and one.
Me: Ah ha! So you can count higher than a million!
(look of amazement on his face)
Lincoln: Whoa. Cool!
