WHAT?!?!!!? Why can't my brain process 'of'? I guess I should be glad there is an explanation.

Or you could find the "Mini-Mental Test" that's on some Senior Dementia websites.

I LOVE this test, pete! I was going to post it sometime but couldn't remember how to look it up, lol!

You always know a cheat if they take way too long doing it, BTW...

A few more things my brain cannot process. The list is getting very long. I fear the day when my brain can no longer process beer. Life will no longer be worth living.

I got 6! And I don't think I spent a really long time doing it, either.

I'm actually sure this is not a good sign. And I have a terrible memory and frequently feel like dementia is imminent. Yikes. Maybe it's a weird form of savantism (useless ability to count letter frequency???)
