Find the man
So, my sister, who is always sending me interesting bits of information, sent me this today:
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds,
the right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man
between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally.
If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain
is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein If you have not found the man
after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that
part of the brain stronger!!! This little game ends with the following conclusion: Once you find him - it’s embarrassing, and you think, Why didn’t I see him immediately? And, yes, the man is really there!!!
Needless to say, I didn’t find the man after 3 seconds, 60 seconds, 3 minutes or 10 minutes. In fact, I had to get up, watch the rest of 30 ROCK, call my sister and just as she said, “hello?”, I finally found the man. Which is actually, a lot faster than I find men on Match.com, but well, significantly lower than the curve. Then I began wondering, does this test translate to other things I can’t find? Like, keys? The remote, phone (YES, I still have a land line), my blackberry, business cards, expense receipts, glasses (on top of my head) and building ID. The list can go on. But you know what? I came to the conclusion, (without the help of my therapist), that none of the above has any meaning, other than, most likely, I had one Cosmo too many or 2 hours too little of sleep. Even, alas, finding the man. Unless of course, he shows up in Match.com. How’d you do?
