Intuition

Remember Art Linkletter and “kids say the darndest things”? This is one of those stories.

Last weekend I was playing Wii with my nephew, Mason, who recently turned 7 years old. I’m a novice when it comes to video games – he’s much better than I am. So I got to a place in the game where I was flummoxed, and I said out loud, “I don’t know what to do now.”

Mason said matter-of-factly, “Use your intuition, Aunt Anne.” It just cracked me up! I immediately wondered, are they teaching that in North Carolina public schools these days? So I asked him where he’d learned about intuition.

His answer was, “From Scooby-Doo.” (!) He went on to explain that there’s a character in the cartoon named Daphne who talks about using your intuition to figure things out and that intuition is kind of like a feeling. Go figure!

It was good advice too because when I stopped trying to figure Wii out and just went with the flow, I began playing much better.
