(Baseline Séance from Mariposaxprs)
“Your results are right on the edge of normal,” the doctor told me after administering a mental competency test and adding up my score. “Really can’t tell from this whether there is a problem or not. Educated people tend to do better on these tests (masking cognitive impairment) and others not so well, especially if English is not their first language.”
“So what now?” My mind has been frustrating me – more than usual. Even my husband is concerned.
“Well, now we have a baseline measurement. We’ll administer the test again in six months and add to it another, less biased test.”
So I guess that’s six months more of just wondering if I’m losing it as opposed to knowing for certain whether I am or not.
This week’s challenge is brought to you by Proscenium, who offered the suggestion a few weeks back. I have no idea what will follow (one never does with Proscenium) but I am excited to see.
In the meantime, here are a few quotations to set your gears in motion:
From Anthony Robbins: “If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept in life, you’ll find it’s easy to slip into behaviors and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve.”
From Babe Ruth: “All ballplayers should quit when it starts to feel as all the baselines run uphill.”
