I don’t know where this month has gone. My life right now feels like a whirlwind.
Between spending 6 hours a week at a hospital getting saline infusions, making trips out to campus to finalize my fall semester, planning our trip to Kansas City for the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly, preparing for my in-laws’ visit in May, and starting an intense physical therapy protocol, I haven’t had time to breathe.
And breathing is important, or so I’m told.
Writing, too, has taken a set on the back burner. And it’s not like I don’t have ideas, I just can’t get them down before they fly out of my head.
So this isn’t a carefully planned and researched post about a facet of Autism. It’s not even one of my typical lists, with discussions and comparisons. No, this is a collection of the one thing that’s been sticking in my head these days: funny and/or ridiculous things I’ve said or heard recently.
“He sounded disappointed that the cat didn’t fit down the toilet?”
“Are you prepared to make your evil laugh?”
“Just because she didn’t pet you doesn’t mean you can hiss at her.”
“The bush is buzzing again. Must be April.”
“This sign is old. Irish people objected to being compared to potatoes.”
“I can’t tolerate it orally”
“Buttons makes everything a bit more formal.”
“I need you to come touch Einstein’s face. NOW.”
“What, have the hipsters ruined hats for everyone now?”
“But if we end up there, can I ride a camel?”
So here we are. It’s funny the things that come out of our mouths sometimes. I’m not an eavesdropper, but I definitely feel like I hear more of other peoples’ conversations than your average neurotypical. I like to chalk that up to hyper-hearing and a natural curiosity.
I hope that your week is filled with amusing conversations!
