Okay–just saw this on YouTube and was thoroughly impressed not only at the creativity (who would think of something like this!?) but at the sheer manual dexterity…Oh, and I’ve always liked this song, too, which is a bonus.
I’ve been convinced since childhood that women’s and girl’s brains and reflexes are wired differently than men’s, allowing them to do things like this. It first occurred to me in grade school when the girls would play elaborate games of paddycake in which a single complex sequence of motions would last all of recess. And no boy I ever knew, no matter how hard the girls tried to teach him, and no matter how hard he tried to learn, could ever last more than a few moves.
Frustrated, we boys would run off to play something less mind-consuming, like tag.
