Ask "what if" questions like: "What if the salad I'm about to eat was almost poisoned by an unknown villain, but an unlikely hero came along and saved the day?" or "What if the 80 year-old man walking down the street right now is really a 12 year-old trapped in an old man's body?" or "What if that little girl making sand-castles has psychic powers and grows up to become a detective?" Combat the normal with the extraordinary.
