Rote Memory

Every now and then we catch Neti and Meke chanting something where our ears would catch a random English word or two. It begins with the counting sequence that caused Meke to exclaim "Sunday Apples!" It wasn't until tonight that we were able to get them to repeat it from beginning to end as I scribbled it down on paper. We still think this was part of their pre-orphanage experience. Here it is:

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eight, ninety, hundred, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December, straight, curve, zigzag, diagonal, vertical, horizontal, circle, triangle, rectangle, cylinder, oval, pyramid, square, cube, yellow, orange, black green blue, brown, white, pink, red, green, rose, violet, near, far, narrow, wide, short, tall, high, low, fat, thin, big, small, slow, fast, full, empty (pronounced EMM-puh-tee)
