Malcolm loves numbers and he loves crunching numbers in his head
The other day in the car he started telling us that the Singapore Flyer takes 37 minutes to go 1 round
So I asked,
Me : Then how long will it takes to go 2 rounds ?
Malcolm : 1 hour 14 min
Me : What about 3 rounds ?
*slightly longer pause*
Malcolm : 1 hour 51 min
Me : 4 rounds ?
*almost immediate, while I was still doing the Math in my head*
Malcolm : 2 hour 28 min !
Me : How did you get that ?
Malcolm : If 2 rounds is 1 hour 14 min, then 4 rounds is double lor
His way of adding 1 hour 14 min twice is definitely easier than mine, adding 37 minutes to 1 hour 51 minutes !
I may be imagining things, but whenever my 6 years old does things like this, I see an image of a bespectacled quirky socially awkward nerd
