You might have seen the TV quiz show Are You Smarter Than A 10-Year-Old?
It’s where adults who have years’ of general knowledge to draw on are pitted against a 10-year-old child, fresh from their school lessons, to answer questions for a cash prize.
At almost 28-year’s-old, I like to think that if I was a contestant on a show like this it wouldn’t be too much of an embarrassing experience for me.
Hopefully all that information I learnt at school and ever since has been stored somewhere in my brain, ready to be used when needed.
That’s what I like to think anyway.
This week I was looking through some books with Caitlin and telling her the names of some of the wild animals.
I pointed to one grey animal and told her confidently that it was a rhino.
She responded sternly: ‘No Daddy, it’s a hippopotamus.’
I had to admit defeat, she was right and I was wrong.
So in our house this week It Was Are You Smarter Than A Two-Year-Old?
On the subject of large, grey-ish wild mammals, the answer was no.
