One of the skills that Oliver gets from his Miller DNA is an uncanny ability to play the card game Concentration and related “turn over random things until you find two that match” activities. Catherine is a Concentration savant, as is our niece Patricia, and in recent weeks Oliver has been sourcing Concentration-like games online and watching him play is like watching Frank Sinatra sing.
By way of pre-Denmark cultural preparation, I added a bookmark to Oliver’s Firefox last night pointing at Oline, a pre-schooler website from Danish television. True to form, Oliver found a Concentration-like activity there, and Catherine just phoned me to say that every time he finds a match a big Danish cheer emits from the computer. As such, Oliver is becoming well-equipped to attend football matches and other cheering-related events in Copenhagen this spring.
