This Week’s Lesson
I am looking forward to year 4 teaching swimming lessons at the waterfront!! A brand new set of swimmers and parents, new ideas – what could possibly go wrong?
In the meantime … here is a little something to think about …
Ask someone what color a yield sign is.
Most people will think for a while and say: “Yellow.”
Then ask them this: “Yellow and what?”
They will think harder and say: “Yellow and black.”
Often, they will not realize the second color (black) is even a “color.” They might just say the yield sign is yellow.
Okay, then you say: “You are wrong about that.”
Next, they will say: “What?” You can then say: “A yield sign USED to be yellow and black. It is now red and white.”
They will then say: “It is?”
You will then say: “Yes, it is.”
Now think about the sky (in view of this test). Most people, I guarantee, will see the sky from when they were little children.
People are not seeing what is above their heads today.
