Heads or Tails - Yellow

Heads Or TailsThe theme/prompt for THIS week, September 1, is:

HEADS - "Yellow"

Make any kind of post about anything that is "Yellow."

Since this Tuesday, September 1st, is the first day of school, the first thing that popped into my head is a big yellow school bus. Cory will be getting on one in the morning and starting his last year of high school. Somehow my baby grew up, and now he's a SENIOR.

The school bus got me to thinking about this email I once got:
“In which direction is the bus pictured below traveling?”

Look carefully at the picture.
Do you know the answer?
(The only possible answers are “left” or “right.”)
Think about it

Still don’t know?

Okay, I’ll tell you.

The pre-schoolers all answered “left.”
When asked, “Why do you think the bus is traveling in the left direction?”
they answered:

“Because you can’t see the door.”

Real simple when you think about it, huh?

  1. The little ones always get it right. They look at things so simply. We adults tend to make things harder than they need to be. Very good yellow post.

  2. very fitting for the first day of school today

  3. Our school buses in Australia are not a distinctive colour like your yellow ones! They just have a sign saying "School Bus" at the front! Great idea for yellow!

  4. Because i was a teacher , I had stickers with that address on the school bus- they looked big and yellow and cool sandy

  5. Since we drive on the left in Oz we mess up you bus quiz no end! Great idea for a yellow. I forget that some countries start the new school year in September!

  6. Alrighty then!!!! Good job for today. Love this yellow.

    My HoT is now posted. If you'd like to stop by for a visit, you'll read about Texas's Yellow Rose!!

    The Yellow Rose of Texas

  7. And it would have taken us adults forever to figure that out.

  8. Funny, I didn't get it but my 7 year old piped up and said left before we scrolled down. Glad she was here to help me.

  9. I must have been eating for brain power! I actually got the answer for this. LOL You'll find my Hot at Winding Threads.

  10. I've seen this brain quiz before... nice to see you at HOTS. Mine's up...

  11. Good post! I think I've seen that little quiz, got it wrong the first time and, ooops.

  12. Good post! I think I've seen that little quiz, got it wrong the first time and, ooops.

  13. I've seen that before and still didn't remember. I love that all the Kindergarters got it right away, and of course it makes sense when you think about it.

    Congrats on Cory's last year of school! Time flies! Everytime I see him, I think of Harry Potter now.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
