    One, another, a third, a fourth and the other (the fifth)

    If I count 5 apples in a basket I would say

    1) "One, another, a third, a fourth and the other".

    I wonder I am right.

    Also I want to know how can I count apples (or whatever) not in a basket.

    I mean, if there are a lot of apples on the floor and I'm going to five of them out into a box,

    how can I count them? Is it same as sentence 1?

    I would just say, “One, two, three, four, five.”
    Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
