The king's men didn't understand either...

For bedtime reading, the girls and I sat down to The Little Engine That Could. A classic! "Wha's that?" asks Margaret, pointing to one of the sad little toys intended for the good girls and boys on the other side of the mountain.

"That's Humpty-Dumpty," I say.

"Wha's that?" Josie asks and points.

"That's Humpty-Dumpty," I repeat.

"Wha's that?" Margaret asks again.

"Humpty-Dumpty."

"Wha's that?" Josie repeats.

"That's Humpty-Dumpty, the EGG MAN!"

Silence.
