And then I'm thinking, why in the world is that called a 'pinky' finger? So I looked it up on wiki and the pedia says that the word comes from Dutch. In Dutch, pink means little finger, so in English that was adopted and changed to pinky.
It feels nice to be needed here. I hope they never discover the internet. :)
Update: I asked one of my students if he knew the name of the little finger. He held his up and said, "uh...children finger". Funny.
