Count ParaTags in selection

I would like to make a selection on a document (manually) before I run a script to count the paragraph tags that specific selection contains. 

Say I have 22 bulleted notices in a certain section (all Flow A). I find it error-prone to manually count them. I think a script is perfect for this purpose but I cannot figure out how to apply counting tags to my selection. 

Can anyone help me?

You could also add automatic numbering for this paragraph.

Then check the numbers and Undo this change (CTRL+Z).

This is much faster than writing a script.

Brilliant!!! I'd feel much smarter if I'd have thought of that!
