Helen, in a nutshell

On Friday, we went to an indoor playground. Connor scrambled right in. Helen decided that there should be an entrance where only a net existed. In this video, she gropes around for an entrance and then Connor points her toward the correct place. Only when she sees the entrance, does she enter? Oh no, because apparently she remains convinced that the door should be elsewhere, and she can't get over her annoyance at the door not being where she preferred it to be. I mean, come on, what were the designers of this space thinking? So Connor tries to rationalize with the irrational being, and demonstrates to her that the entrance will work. Not surprisingly, he failed to persuade her, so eventually I just tossed her in the entrance, and she was happy and started playing.
