"If a dozen men, working eight hours a day, had to dig a hole ten-and-a-half miles deep—how long would it be, including Sundays, before they put down their spades?"

The King's eyes shone with a cunning sparkle. He gazed at the Cat with a look of triumph. But the Cat had its answer ready.

"Two seconds," it said quickly, with a little flick of its tail.

"Two seconds! Are you mad? The answer's in years!" The King rubbed his hands together with glee at the thought of the Cat's mistake.

"I repeat," said the Cat. "It would take them two seconds. To dig such a hole would be utterly foolish. 'Ten miles deep?' they would say. 'Why, what on earth for?'"

P.L. Travers

comment Why is my 10 yr old struggling with school?
@bobobobo Basically yes. But more than that I am trying to probe whether she retains information at all.

Just as a stupid question. Does she sing along to her favorite band? When she hears new songs is she able to hum or sing them?

@Worriedmommy And now I would seek a neurologist.
