Dyslexia Perplexia

It is difficult to explain dyslexia to people who do not experience it. Sometimes words and sentences look like they are written in random letters in the Russian alphabet, making them essentially impossible to read. Other times, individual words simply morph onto something else. There was a headline in the newspaper last week that read 'Tornadoes Descend On Iowa' -- I thought it said 'Tomatoes Descend On Iowa.' There was a listing in the TV Guide a couple weeks ago for 'The Complete History of the Greens Berets' -- I thought it said 'The Complete History of the Green Bean.' That's what it looked like to me, I swear to Dog.
