At Calicut airport, Air India Flight to Delhi.
We had just boarded the flight. Little Liya, very thrilled and counting people boarding behind us....
She uttered 'Momma look... one uncle, two uncles'..., then?
A sudden pause...!!
Has something gone wrong?
Yes, because she found that not just one or two but several 'uncles' are boarding flight, and she probably can count up to 10 not more than that.
She immediately resumed "...and many uncles", realizing that it's better to conclude than showing off her 'counting skills'. How smart!
