Day Fifteen: Current Grades

When you’re my age, you don’t have current grades. Despite my lack of qualifications, I did once have a pretty high IQ, but the old fibro fog is slowly chipping away at that. Once it gets down to the same as my shoe size, hopefully, I shall still have the presence of mind to shoot myself!

Then I remembered … Blogthings. They’re bound to have some nice short tests - about as much as I could possibly handle these days and, indeed they did. Being British, I had no idea what 8th Grade was and had to look it up, so now I know, let’s see how my brain measures up to the average 13-14 year old:

Congratulations, you got 7/10 correct!

(That’s about the same level I was at in school too and – get this weird logic – it was because I was good at maths that I was also able to learn German in school.)

Sorry, you only got 6/10 correct!

(Actually, my geography is pretty good, but some of the questions were US centric, whereas, I know a lot more about those *other countries* – the ones most Americans never learn about, as the old joke goes, unless they’re about to invade them. That’s my excuse!)

Congratulations, you got 8/8 correct!

(LOL See, I always knew I was a genius! Actually, after doing the last two tests, I took one look at the science test and it could have been written in Swahili. My brain had reached it’s mental limit and refused to even understand the questions, let alone figure out the answers. So I took a rest from the tests. Came back to it another day and this was the result.)

(This is one of a series of posts following this 30 Day Challenge, which really isn’t at all challenging. It’s also quite adolescent, but is just meant as fun.)
