Head Shrinking

One of my really bright students went off to the psychologist the other day and spent his afternoon playing head games with him. At the end of the testing, the man told him 1) he is really bright (I could have told him THAT for free!) and 2) he is dyslexic.

I told him, so was I... There is life after dyslexia... Intelligent life!

He laughed and added that the only other interesting thing the man had said was that most dyslexic children (he's 17 and HUGE, so calling him a "child" is really odd) have parents who are left handed. Both of his were.

I told him neither of mine were, but my brother is... We laughed again.
