Bodily, I may be only a few tram stops from the terminus at the knackers yard, but mentally I’m not exactly underperforming. I have completed today’s Guardian Cryptic crossword, which is heartening in itself, but I produced an almost unbelievable personal best, completing 24 of its 30 clues – that’s eighty percent! – on the first run through.
Ok, it’s the Monday Rufus, the certified easy one, but even so.
And then, for a second time, I completed the Killer Sudoku, the Easy one, in pen. No errors. Pure calculation.
Score one for my brain!
