My Dad is a smart man. Many of you may not have met him, but he is very intelligent. Sometimes, however, his mind forgets. I walked up to him as he sat at the computer and noticed that he was completing one of those fake IQ tests that advertise stuff. Not even close to a real IQ test. Anyway, so that was mistake number one. I looked on the screen to see the following question: "Which of the following is NOT a primary color?" My Dad then sang an interesting rendition of a popular children's song, "The primary colors are 1-2-3 red, yellow, and green." My eyes widened. Those aren't the primary colors. What capped off the bizarre spectacle was when my dad then proceeded to click "RED" and then got mad, "I meant to click blue!" Wow. I didn't have the heart to correct him at first, but I figured it was better if it came from me than one of his business associates or clients. "The primary colors are red, yellow, and BLUE." Then I laughed and laughed as he sat in stunned silence.
