Our Mysterious Brain

Had this emailed to me yesterday...


Try it......it only takes 2 seconds. Unbelievable!


This will boggle your mind (and it made me giggle at myself), and you'll keep trying it over and over to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't!



1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer (okay, I guess you don't have to be at your computer, you can do this anywhere), lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.



I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! I'll bet, before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so!









Thanks, Mom (and Kira!).

It was definintely cold enough last night for another fire. Joe even rearranged the furniture for more efficient canine snuggl-ability while maintaining the virtue of reading light, TV watching, and roaring fire enjoyment (he just switched the chair with the love seat). At one point, I was blanketed by four sleeping hounds, simultaneously! I think they love their humans as much as their humans love them.

And I love that Joe and I are on the same page when it comes to them. I would guess that not a lot of husbands would make sure his wife has ample reading light, while ensuring that the dogs have enough room to cuddle with her. I am blessed!

Okay...that was hilarious! Thank goodness only my 4 year-old was around to watch me doing that. :) I can't wait to try it out with all the kids.

Okay... I figured out how to do it... but it only works if you move your knee and really focus on your finger when making the 6. It's a good way to trick someone into thinking you can do it, when really it's not your foot, but your knee you are moving. hee hee.

I couldn't do it! Amazing what our brains can and can't handle. I'll have to try Amy's method later!

Stay warm and enjoy your fire Pam!
