Yesterday I was teaching two girls and one of their ponies had an itchy nose so kept stopping to scratch his nose. On his leg, on the fence, on the pony in front of him!
I brushed it off and told her he must have a fly up his nose.
Which cued the questions:
“How many flies fit up a pony’s nose?”
“If all the flies in the world went up the noses of all the ponies would there be any flies left?”
What followed was a fascinating walk through the woods looking for poisonous plants, spotting squirrels and listening out for field mice!
But it just goes to show, kids have the weirdest train of thoughts.
