Nursery rhymes

My dad tells me: “I used to read you girls nursery rhymes.”

I laugh: “Yeah. I remember your nursery rhymes!” We spend the next few minutes reciting the rhymes he taught us.

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockell shells
And one big F’ing onion!

We snicker and keep driving.

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
Each with a dollar and a quarter.
Jill came down
With two fifty
They didn’t go up for water!

“You taught us that?” I’m slightly mortified and laughing at the same time.

“You’re mortified now? You should have seen your mother’s face when she first heard me reciting them to your sister!”
