Spell ICUP

So today at Running and Reading, Shakul and Eric asked me if I knew the calculator trick. I said I didn't, so they explained it for me:

There once was a girl who lived on 69 street
And her boobs were 222 big
So she went to 51 street
And saw Dr. X
She had 8 magic pills
And now she's... (then you turn the calculator upside down to get the answer, which spells out boobless in numbers.)

After telling them to put the calculator away and start reading or they wouldn't get snack, I allowed myself a brief smile. Because that's exactly the same trick that I used to do back at Porter Elementary. Nice to know that no matter where you go and how old they might be, the naivete of youth always seems to find its home in the minds of kids.
