Straight to the Mouth
I heard this joke once. About this student and his teacher. The teacher was trying to teach the child how to use hand eye coordination. The child was struggling and the teacher said something along the line of; "If you can touch your finger to your nose three times in a row, I will buy you an ice cream cone." Of course the child wants the ice cream so he practices and practices. Finally the child achieves the goal and the teacher keeps her end of the bargin, only to have the child miss his mouth and ended up smashing the ice cream onto his forehead.
I'm sure I botched the joke, but I think you get the picture. It was a cute joke, something that probably did happen to many children in some way or another. Every time I watch Vada study at her hand and then attempt to do something with it, I think of that joke. Especially when she does something like stick her finger up my nose!
