It’s after school pick-up, and baby girl and I are playing an impromptu Guess Who game.
I tell her that we’ll only play a couple rounds… so we play one game, and I win.
We start the second game. I am nearing the end, with far more of my people down, while she has loads left. I go easy on her, as she asks really specific questions that stall her progress, like “does your person have a headband?” when there is only ONE person with a headband! But also, I don’t avoid winning.
I ask a question and knock down a few more. I have 1 left. She is totally Megan. I have this in the bag.
But now it is her turn.
And she has LOADS left.
But then she asks… “is your person, Rebecca?”
What the actual F*&%????
She had 18 people up, but still completely fluked the question and picked the right person.
Rebecca it was! She won!
I was flabbergasted, asking “how did you do that?” She said she just knew, and still in total shock, we went on to play another game.
I went first. I asked a question and she responded, before I knocked a couple people down.
Now it was her first shot of the third game.
“Is your person… Lisa?”
FUCK OFF. No special characters either.
It IS Lisa!
How the $^%*$*$&#&(#()(???????
I couldn’t speak. I was actually staring at her, ‘like what is going on?’ I went to her side of the rug to see if she could see through my card somehow… nope. I look at her dead serious.
“How did you do that? Did someone whisper it to you? Or was it a feeling?”
“It was a feeling.”
I just can’t get over this. Someone is messing with me. Is someone messing with me? What is going on?
I ask her a series of specific questions. If she can tell the future I want the answers.
“Am I going to write a book?”
(Hold on, I actually have written a book).
“Am I going to have my book in bookstores?”
“What am I thinking now?”
She laughs. “I don’t know!”
We played two more games after that which I won… either her EXTREMELY lucky streak ran out, the ‘feelings’ stopped, or whoever or whatever was whispering in her ear ran off… either way… it made for a truly entertaining Guess Who session… I won’t be forgetting those games for a while.
