An Insight Into the Human Psyche

At toddler gym the other day, Stephanie was asked by the leader/facilitator to "come on over here" for the next programmed event. At the time, Stephanie was playing on the slide by herself. She ignored the first request.

"Stephanie, can you come over here for a minute, please?" said the facilitator. Nothing.

Finally, she looked up. To the world at large she announced, "I don't think I can hear you." And then she returned to her individual play.

I suspect that Stephanie merely vocalized the implicit thought that underlies a great deal of partisan division.

"I don't think I can hear you."
