Mental gymnastics

I suspect that each of us has odd abilities, though for most of us don’t make extensive use of them.

I have two minor ones, probably related:

  • I write rhyme easily, in various structures, almost as fast as I can type. (It helps that I am not a fast typist, perhaps.)
  • Everyday words and phrases bring song lyrics instantly to mind; this actually creates something of a background noise that I have to mentally suppress.

The young lady featured in this news story (and who has her own website here) has a different ability.

She’s getting some notoriety for it. Good for her!
