Whew! I did it perfectly (I'm 55). Have you seen the test where a patient is handed a piece of paper and asked to draw a clock and make it 3:00. I woman I know that was later diagnosed with Alzheimer's couldn't do it. She stared at it, she knew that she used to be able to do it, but she simply could not. It really upset her, too, poor thing. I read constantly, which I think helps, and my students with special needs keep me on my toes. I'm always researching one thing or another and I have to keep very alert and "on it" at all times while I'm working. That being said, I often can't find a word, and it often isn't on the tip of my tongue--it's further back than that. I always come up with it, but not in a terribly timely fashion. Getting old isn't for sissies, that's fer sure. Alzheimer's (and any form of senility) is a particularly cruel disease. Uhmmmm, fart cat? See, I know there's a joke in there, but I don't get it. I will though, eventually.
