We finally set up our Wii Fit today and you have to stand on the thing and go through all these steps to get it started and it asks you questions and weighs you and then you are supposed to do these balancing things. I could not understand what it was asking me to do for a while and finally My Sweetie was able to explain it to me and it was easy. But because I was really bad at the beginning, it said my Wii Fit age was 63. SIXTY-THREE!! Just because I can't understand simple directions.
I have directions dyslexia. Sometimes when I'm watching "Jeopardy!" I will totally misunderstand the clue. For instance if the clue was "This famous children's author has been criticized by the logging industry." I might yell out, "What is The Lorax?!" But clearly they were looking for the name of the author and not the name of the book. And now you can probably see why I don't use recipes. And that time I rewired that lamp? Man, that nearly killed my brain because with wiring? You HAVE to follow directions. And when I do have to follow directions, I have to read them out loud several times. Like eighteen. So with the lamp, I was sitting there all, "Thread the wires through the (whatever)" so many times, I think My Sweetie had to leave the room.
And I've been that way all my life. So if I had had a Wii Fit when I was twelve, would it have said my Wii Fit age was 23? Who knew that not being able to easily comprehend directions makes you older? It seems like it would be the other way around.
