Yes, I can! (Ha! Bet you didn't know I heard you say "No you cant" before you clicked that link, huh...)
Really. I can read your mind. And, I can prove it.
Let's do a little exercise.....Get a piece of paper and a pen. Got one? Ok...(Yes, this is going to require your participation. Trust me...it wont hurt.)
Pick a number between one and ten. Any number will work. Write it down at the top of your paper and then circle it. It will be needed again in the future.
Ok...a little light math is required here. (I hope I don't burn anyone out...)
Take your original number and multiply that number by two. Write that new number down on your paper.
Now, add eight to your new number. Write down that resulting new number. (Cross out the previous number to avoid any potential confusion. Sometimes all these numbers get to look the same...)
Now, take your resulting new number and divide it by two. Again, write down your new new number and cross off the old one. (Are you still with me???)
Now, subtract your original number from your new new number. And, again...write it down and cross off your previous number.
Now the hard part...(Ok, not really...But, go with me on this for the suspense factor, ok?)
I want you to assign a letter to the number you have in front of you. If your number is a 1, then the letter is an A. If it is a 2, then the letter is a B. 3 is a C, 4 is a D, and so on... Write down what letter you got.
Now, I want you think of a country that starts with that letter. Any country. Could be in the Americas...could be in Europe. Anywhere. Just pick a country. (Got one yet???) Ok...write it down next to your letter. (Yeah, I know...there is a lot of writing in this. Just go with me on it.)
Now, whatever letter you had...move to the next letter in the alphabet. (It's the alphabet, people...its not that hard.) If you had an A, you new letter is a B. If you had a B, your new letter is a C...etc.) Write down that new letter.
Now, I want you to think of an animal that starts with that letter. Could be any animal...anything at all. Big. Small. Doesn't matter. Pick one and write the animal down next to your new letter.
Now, I want you to think of the color of that animal. (Pretty sure you can guess what to do now...) Write it down under the animal.
Now, its my turn...
(Please...be quiet. I have to concentrate.)
Slowly rubbing my temples while appearing to be concentrating really hard...
Tapping into the cosmic powers of the universe... (Secretly hoping I turned off the coffee pot at home before I left today cause cleaning that up sucks...)
Ok. Ummm...I'm sorry. But....
THERE ARE NO GRAY ELEPHANTS IN DENMARK!!
Told ya I could read your mind...Have an awesome April Fool's Day!!
