Just take a moment and think about it.
It shouldn’t matter that you have no idea what I’m asking you to think about, nor should it matter that even if you were to think about something in an attempt to do what I’m asking you do to — you’d still be clueless about what exactly you should be thinking about.
Just think about it, okay?
Find a nice quiet place, on the corner of a nice comfortable couch, and pull up a nice squishy foot stool and put your nice warm, sock-enclosed feet on the top of said squishy foot stool next to that couch in that quiet place and just start thinking about it. If you could put your chin in one of your hands as if to illustrate the fact that you’re thinking about it, that would convince me that you were indeed thinking about it — which would make me pleased.
If you could also scratch your right temple just next to your eye and make a hmm sound to make it appear like you were trying to think about whatever it might be that I’m suggesting that you think about, that would allow me to relax for a few minutes here while you were thinking about it. Also, if you’d make that swallowing, smacking sound with your mouth accompanied by a sighing/breathing sound — that would add to the “thinking about it-allure” that I was hoping for when I asked you to think about it in the first place.
Sometimes I think that maybe it would be wise for me to give you some additional hints when I asked you to think about it. Sometimes you look at me with this blank look on your face as if you have no idea what it is that you should be thinking about or why I’m asking you in my passive-agressive voice to think about something in the first place. Sometimes, when you’re particularly confused about what it is you should be thinking about, you will wander away so that you don’t have to look at me, staring at you, waiting for the thinking to begin.
Stop analyzing and just think. Can you do me that one favor?
In the end, if I ask you to think about it and you don’t know what I’m asking you to think about, you’re better off making the sounds and pretending to think about it and answering “Yeah, good point about that thinking about it thing…” than complicating the whole me asking you to think about it and you trying to think about it by challenging my request with your non-thinking challenges.
If you don’t know what to think, pretend to think. And if you can’t pretend to think, just chew gum or something.
Because, believe it or not — people chewing gum always look deep in thought.
