Pablo's starting a new regimen: he's going to memorize all of Shakespeare's sonnets.
Yes, there are around 160 of them. Yes, he can do it. You should see the stuff his brain can retain if he puts some effort into learning it.

Was thinking on how I used to memorize poetry for mental exercise. How I would commit to memory pieces of music that Miriam would give me to learn. I am sooo soft now. Only bits and pieces of things come back to me now.

Maybe I should retrousser les manches, roll up my sleeves, get to work. Memorize a bit of something if only to stave off the flab, push back the laziness that is taking over my brain.
