“What time is it?”
The girl stood looking at the clock in front of her, trying to figure out the time displayed.
The big hand was a little past the three….
And the small hand was at the 11.
But there was a third hand too…..right about the number 8.
She wondered if that was right, but then remembered there were only meant to be two numbers….
Was it three eleven?
Or eleven eight?
If there were three hands, and three numbers, then she knew it had to be something.
She looked at the clock one more time, then yelled out back to her mother.
“The time is 11.3.8”
She nodded silently to herself.
