Poor Poppy

I have often talked about what a funny kid AB is.  While I was visiting Tennessee, she pulled a good one on Poppy.

AB and Poppy were in the den, drawing while waiting on supper.  Poppy had an idea to draw clocks.  So they each got a fresh sheet of paper and drew a circle.  Poppy, being the precise engineer that he was trained to be, started drawing his clock like this....
...with the 3, 6, 9, and 12 in their appropriate places, planning to fill in the remaining numbers after.

AB started drawing her clock like this...

...starting with 1 and going to twelve,  all in order.

She happened to glance up at Poppy's clock and saw the missing numbers.  She patted his hand and with the most pitiful look at him said, "Poppy?  You don't know your numbers, do you?"
