Grandpa Joe was sitting on his porch talking to his grandson Bill. Grandpa Joe always like to tell stories, so even at the ripe old age of 5 Bill was never too quick to trust anything that Grandpa had to say.
"I was 72 on my last birthday and I'll be 74 on my next birthday!" Grandpa Joe exclaimed.
Incredulous, Bill ran inside to tattle to Grandma. But Grandma stood up for Grandpa, telling Bill that Grandpa Joe was right.
How could Grandpa be telling the truth?
