"Beans, Beans Good for the Heart,
The more you eat the more you...Fart".
Being the good little girl that Top Ender is, she told me later that night that my sister had told her a rhyme, but that she couldn't quite remember it... I knew that wasn't strictly true as you can tell Top Ender anything once and it will be stored for use at a later date.
Last night my side of the family were all having dinner together and the meal had beans. With an evil glint in her eye my sister asked;
"Top Ender, do you remember that rhyme I told you about beans?"
"No" said Top Ender
"Yes, Top Ender does" I sighed
Top Ender looked at me and realised that I wasn't really that mad about her knowing this "rude" rhyme.
"Which one was it again?" Top Ender pondered "Oh yes that's it - Beans, Beans Good for the Heart, The more you eat the more you...Fart. Was that the one you meant?"
"Yes it was the one she meant" I replied
"I had no idea she would remember it" my sister lied
"Tell her anything once and she will memorise it, you should know that by now!" Daddy offered.
And so we all had a good giggle.
I am already thinking what I can teach Cousin (My sisters daughter) in a few months time.
There once was a young lady from Nantucket...
