Very good! I ran out of fingers a couple of times and had to use toes. Ran out of them and went to the dumpster to see if someone had dropped in a bag of fingers. No luck! Then I said, "is there a bettter way?" Came right to me, I went to the store and bought 51 bags of fingers.

Why so many fingers.

Also, you could've used fish fingers. Then, when you're finished counting, you have a tasty snack! (You could use regular ones for aa snack as well, but, the word on the street is, they taste bad. Didn't try them, though...)

Do not particularly like fish, so I bought chicken fingers.
