‘Yes’ I replied, ‘of course you can’. Lee added that you can have half a number.
I was getting dressed at the time and said ‘break the number down, whats half of thirty’? ‘Fifteen’ he immediately replied.
‘Yup and whats half of five’? I prompted
‘I don’k know’
‘Imagine five sweets how can we have half’? I questioned.
Looking at his fingers and looking thoughtful he replied with ‘two each remainder one’.
‘Right’ I said ‘what do you do with the remaining one’?
‘Throw it in the bin’ was his immediate reply!!
I do like his sharing capacity and belief in making things fair!!
