Just Go With It

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you put yourself in the other person’s shoes, or reality, and just go with it?

An example.

After one of my Hawaiian culture youth programs, a few years ago, I asked the pre-k audience if there were any questions.

A boy raised his hand and asked, as he pointed to his wrist, “Do you like my watch?”

I said, “Yes, I do! That’s a fine watch.”

The contrast of this non-relevant question greatly amused me, as do many comments made by kids.

However, it was the next comment that really threw me.

A boy raised his hand.

Me: “Yes? What’s your question?”

Boy: “Do you like my watch, “he asked, “even if I don’t have it on?”

And he pointed to his empty wrist.


What realities have you put yourself into?
