It's amazing how this stuff comes back to you

Early one morning as I ended a conversation with a coworker, Ting Ting demanded her turn. My friend was happy to oblige.

"OK," I said, handing Ting Ting the phone. "Say 'hello' to Miss Mary."

She chattered happily for a minute, then returned the phone to me. I said goodbye to Mary and hung up.

"What's her got?" Ting Ting asked me. I looked at her blankly.

"Excuse me?" I said.

"Her got baa baa black sheep?" Ting Ting asked.

I thought a minute. The light went on.

"No," I said. "Mary Had a Little Lamb."
