We recently taught grandson one of life's basic lessons - dunking biscuits. The biscuit we selected for training purposes was the ginger nut, possibly the most dunkable of biscuits, but not necessarily the easiest for a beginner. Anyway, as all dunkers know, dunking technique comes down to the three Ds - Dip, Draw and Droppage.
- Dip - into the tea or other hot beverage.
- Draw - from the beverage.
- Droppage - to be avoided at all costs.
Even though grandson doesn't drink tea, being only four, he soon learned to dunk very creditably in his grandparent's tea. Initially we were prepared for some droppage from such an early learner, but were pleasantly surprised at how quickly he developed a deft technique.
All in all, very pleasing. A basic but vital life-skill successfully passed on.
