Out of the Mouth of an Aspergers Child!
So I have a client with Aspergers disroder and he is so funny! He just doesn't get social cues. He talks like a little adult, which is a characteristic of this disorder. Anyway he has always been on me for being "SOOOO OLD" and not being married. Yeah I love it when a 7 year old rubs it in! I already know this. Anway, so we went to the park last week and I found a friend that I hadn't seen for awhile and so I stopped to talk to her. My client ran off and then started walking towards me with this guy about my age. Then I hear him say, "That's her right there, sitting down, talking! She's 23! She's not married! "Then he introduces him as his cousin and says to me, "He's not married either!" I thought I was going to die! I was laughing so hard. We shook hands and talked for awhile. I was strangely attracted to him! Oh, out of the mouth of an Asperger's child!
