Joe, age 6

At the Edward Jones Investments information table this weekend at Dexter Days, they had guess the number of pieces of candy in the jars. One was full of lollipops, one was full of Mike 'n Ikes.
Man: Would you like to enter in the contest?
Joe: Sure! That's a lot of candy.
Me: Okay, how many Mike 'n Ikes do you think are in that jar?
Joe: IIIIII'l guuuueeeeessss... ... Double Hundred!
Me: Two hundred?
Joe: Yeah, two hundred.
Me: And for the lollipops?
(Lollipop jar contains approx 35 lollipops)
Joe: IIII'lll guessssss... One hundred and two.
Man: Those are some good guesses!

As we walked away...
Joe: I think we might win.
Me: Maybe.
Joe: Well... The man SAID they were good guesses.
