How to Get Schooled by a 4-Year-Old

My daughter Anica is beautiful, ruthless, and ridiculously smart. She embodies every connotation of the word precocious.

In this chapter, she and I play a game called "I'm Thinking of an Animal" -- kind of a kindergarten version of Twenty Questions. (I designed it myself. I'm so very smart.)

Sometimes, Anica gets bored and messes with me.
 

But that's just her playing around. Recently, she got ruthless.

Trying to outsmart her is futile.

Even when she takes pity on me.

Even when it's my turn.


At least my daughter still has one shred of compassion.

My only hope, at this point, is to curry favor for when she rules the world.

She's just keeping you humble Adam :)

Indeed (to both comments above). I am so screwed.

I feel like I should save this link and comment on it randomly every so often. That way it will pop up for you between Anica's requests for it and you can enjoy it even more frequently.

Wow.... We really are the same person, aren't we.

I am okay with this. And yes, you two are the same.
