What? How did we get eight legs? Well, to start, there are no animal legs on the floor, that’s for sure. They’re all on the bed or flying over the chair. There are, however, eight furniture legs: Four belonging to the bed and four to the chair. Where did the other two come from? Well, you are now in the room, aren’t you? Presumably, you have two legs, so the total is therefore 10.
