Miss Beasley asked little Jill if she knows his numbers.

"Yes," she said. "My father taught me."

"Good. What comes after three?"

"Four," answers little Jill.

"What comes after six?"

"Seven."

"Very good," says the teacher. "Your dad did a good job. What comes after ten?"

Little Jill smiles and says, "A Jack."

Footnote: Little Jill is now 20 and earning her teachers degree and her favorite card game is TEXAS HOLD'EM.
