Win 15% of the Tic Tac Toe games with my daughter. If you meet her, you will know that 15% is an huge achievement (ties not counted).
Win 1% of the logical arguments with my daughter. Count myself lucky to win 1%.
When my daughter was age 11:
We toured a large seaport...
First 1.5 hours, Port rep driving around explaining the ins and outs of the port volumes, import and export by major trading partners (Largest Import from Germany, Largest Export to Puerto Rico, etc.):
After 1.5 hours:
Port rep to my daughter: "What do you think of pretty containers?"
My daughter: “Do you ship the containers back to Germany empty or full?”
Port rep: Some empty, some full.
My daughter: “Dad, we can ship to Germany and Puerto Rico from here.”
Port rep: That would be great.
Winning 1% of the logical arguments is pretty good.
