Starting Monday Off On the Right Foot

Matchmaker Hokie PokieWant to drive your friends and co-workers crazy? Issue this little mind-boggling challenge. I couldn’t believe it when I tried it myself, and if you’re anywhere near as stubborn as I am, you will keep trying to see if you can outsmart your foot. Trust me, you can’t.

1) While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2) Now, while doing this, draw the number ‘6’ in the air with your right hand.

3) Your foot will change direction. And there’s nothing you can do about it.

Go ahead. Keep trying all you want. But eventually, you’ll have to give up and get back to work, which makes the moral of this Mary Monday: “Smart a**; dumb foot.”
