“How old are you, mulla? someone asked, ‘Three years older than my brother.

‘How do you know that?’

‘Reasoning. Last year I heard my brother tell someone that i was two years older than him. A year has passed. That means that I am older by one year. I shall soon be old enough to be his grandfather.’
