Tales from the Household

by Gina Perry

Spare the rod, spoil the child; spoil the rod, spare the child. Rod the child, spoil the spare. The spare child spoil the rod. The spare rod spoil the child. The child spoil the spare rod: the child spoil the rod spare. The child rod the spare spoil, the child rod the spoil spare.


Gina Perry, author of Cacti or Bust, is a writer and storyteller in Manchester, England. She likes to entertain herself in pubs/bars/cafes/parks by asking strangers to tell her stories, true or otherwise. (She now also has an aversion to rods, children, spoiling, spares and the word "the.")

How many spoiled children can dance on the spare head of a rod? The answer is hidden in this six. Thank you for the smile, Gina.
