The Awareness Test

My teenage son sent this to me.

How did you do? I failed. Miserably.

Brilliant.

Hmph.

We'll see about that.

A Novel Woman said...

Ah HA!!

Fixed it.

Ack! I am not bear aware. :(

I'm still looking for the damn bear!

No, only joking. I had to wait for the replay. I tried counting the passes of the white team and couldn't do that, either.

I think I'll just go run over a cyclist instead.

DA and Midge,

Yeah, I'm not bear aware either. However, I have great eye/hand coordination.

(Because little things like pedestrians are invisible to me.)

I failed too. Didn't do too badly on the passes, though. Missed one.

Kathy,

I only saw 11 passes, and I didn't see any pedestrians.(g) Baaad.

Time to post some writing or writing related posts on the blog, methinks. Too much silliness.

Wow. Very cool. I counted 13 and sort of remembered the bear (a dark blob) catching my eye, but had quickly dismissed it to stay with the catches. Very impressive!

A Novel Woman said...

Half-past, at least you saw him out of the corner of your eye. I would have blindsided him, then dragged him around under my car for a few blocks. And I didn't count all the passes either...

I got all the passes and I noticed the bear enter the frame, but didn't watch what he was doing. That's a pretty cool psa.

A Novel Woman said...

Hey, Nebraska Girl, well done! My son noticed the bear, but he thought they added an extra black team member. At least you guys noticed! I had no clue.

Lottery Girl said...

Not only did I not notice the bear, but I was unable to count anything because I was so tired the first time I saw this. It is brilliant.

I counted five passes, but then I got distracted by the bear and spent the 40 seconds looking for my glasses cause I thought I was seeing things. You can imagine my relief that the bear was real.

Linda said...

Not only did I totally miss the bear, but I also lost count of the passes. :-(

All right, I'll admit I'm not bear aware. Now, if you can find one with a naked guy moonwalking through, I'll bet I'd notice that. 'Cuz I'm, you know, totally bare aware. {g}

Yay Alyson! At least you SAW the bear!

A Novel Woman said...

Ah, Linda, trust you to be bare aware...
