ESP For Young Learners

You: I have ESP! You can write anything you can think of on a piece of paper, and I can tell you what’s on the paper!

Your Unsuspecting Parent: Really? Show me!

You: Write something on this piece of paper, but don’t tell me what you wrote.

YUP: Okay.

You: Now fold the paper in half 3 times.

YUP: Okay.

You: Take the paper and walk over to the other side of the room and carefully put the paper under one of your feet.

YUP: Does it matter which foot?

You: Umm…no.

YUP: Okay, I did all that. What’s on the paper?

You: Your foot!

Now scoot scoot scoot to find another Unsuspecting Adult!
