How smart is your right foot?

As the saying goes, “Sometimes I sit and think, and sometimes I just sit.”

Summertime is perfect for just sitting. So if you happen to find yourself whiling away a summer afternoon loafing on a porch swing, I’ve got an amusing diversion for you – no thinking required.

A friend of mine named David sent me an e-mail that began: “Subject: Right foot – Do it! It’s mad!” And it just might drive you mad

How Smart is Your Right Foot?

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.
And there’s nothing you can do about it!
