days in a month

Standard

firstborn and his class were talking about how the days of a year are divided into a calender — quotidien, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly etc
the teacher explained —

daily is for newspapers

monthly is payday

weekly is time for a new issue of a magazines

and it was firstborn’s turn to give his teacher an answer…

”what are the things that happen in a fortnight,” his teacher asked.

”ekadasi,” he said. ”my mum fasts once in every 15 days.”

[sigh. i once thought i’d have a private blog to silently chronicle my fasting … ]

did you see this. number 3 is my favourite.
