Today is just one month from my 64th birthday, and my computer is on the blink. 😦 Therefore, you’re going to get a zany forward that I’d prepared ahead to share this Friday. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!Time for Maxine’s annual Senior Dementia Test. Don’t cheat, follow the instructions, and good luck!
It’s that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test. Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it’s important to keep mentally alert. If you don’t use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to determine if you’re losing it or not.
OK, relax, clear your mind and begin:
1. What did you put in the toaster last time you used it?
Answer: bread. If you said “toast,” give up now and try something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said “bread,” proceed to question #2.
2. Say “silk” 5 times. Now spell “silk.” What do cows drink?
Answer: Cows drink water. If you said “milk,” don’t attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading some more appropriate literature like Auto World. However, if you answered correctly, proceed to question #3.
#3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a black house is made from black bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks, what’s a green house made from?
Answer: A green house is made from glass. If you said ” green bricks,” why are you still reading these? If you said, “glass,” then go to question #4.
#4.Without using a calculator: You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus. In Reading, 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on the bus. In Swindon, 2 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 19 people get on. In Swansea, 3 people get off and 5 people get on. In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. Without going back to review this list, how old is the bus driver?
Answer: Well, for crying out loud. Don’t you remember your own age? It was you driving the bus!
If you pass this along, pray your friends do better than you!
(P.S.— 95% of people fail most of the questions!)
