It is what it is

How fast do you read? I’m a notoriously slow reader because I’ll get distracted and think of other things– what I need to do today; that time when I did _______; why is so-and-so so annoying? You name it, a stream of consciousness emerges when I read that always makes me a bit slow. My nephew Raymond, on the other hand, blazes through books. I couldn’t help but take this reading test from Staples to see, exactly, how fast or slow I am. I came out at 340 w.p.m. which places me 36% above the average adult– and about 50% below most college professors. I’m not sure if I should be embarrassed, but I’m not really. It is what it is. What’s your score?
