The Three-Fish Expectation

I was six or seven years old and Grandpa was taking me fishing for the very first time. We were in his garden, he with a fork turning over clumps of soil, me with a discarded tin can to pick up the unearthed worms. When the third worm had been deposited in the can, I turned and started walking away. Grandpa asked me where I was going. Well, we’ve got three worms and we only need three fish. One for me, one for you and one for Grandma.
