One day, Babu driver was driving a train through a forest. Amma was his helper.
In the middle of the forest they heard someone calling, “Help! Help!”
Amma and Babu went to see who needed help. They saw a large pit with two elephants inside.
Not two, Babu said. There are one, two, thwee, fowr, fowteen, twenty… infinity* elephants inside!
“Oh! Infinite elephants in a finite pit? It’s a Quantum Anomaly!”, Amma said. “Only P-Aunty** can understand it!”.
Amma called P-Aunty who came in and said, “It’s a crack in the fabric of spacetime. Elephants are coming in from the other side. You did the right thing by calling me.”
“Gasp! A crack? Do we need to call The Doctor?”, Amma said.
“P-Aunty is the doctor!”, Babu said.
Yes, indeed. Dr. P pulled out her sonic screwdriver, pushed the elephants back, and sealed up the crack.
Moral of the story?
* I taught Chotu the word infinity on a whim. The Hero had gone out of town for a couple of weeks and I wanted him to come back to a kid who said “Infinity”. This is how romance works in The Goddess household.
