Connie Beverly, age 12, was swinging on the swings, thinking when her new friend, Samuel Boots, also age 12, can running to her.
"Hey, Connie!" he exclaimed while sitting down on a swing next to her. "Whatcha thinking about?"
Samuel knew that when Connie thinks, she usually thinks very strangely, so he wasn't surprised when Connie said:
"I'm thinking about how the human mind works."
Samuel thought for a moment.
"What about the human mind?" he asked.
"You only use a certain amount of your brain," she replied. "I'm wondering how you can use the other parts you don't use."
"Maybe you have to exercise your brain," Samuel suggested.
"That was what I was thinking," Connie agreed. "But how can you do that?"
Samuel shrugged. "I don't know."
"As well as some people are smart, and some people are stupid. What decides that?" Connie still wondered.
"Maybe a certain science?" Samuel suggested.
"Or maybe a strong force," she still thought.
"Hmm…" Samuel thought. "It is a strange mind indeed…"
