I'd like to take things on a humorous note today and talk about what I call "Aspie moments." You know, those times when my response to something is so literal it's uncanny! Here goes:
- A conversation between a girl and myself at 13:
Girl: my friend stabbed me in the back.
Me: what did she stab you with?
- My coworker describing a situation in which his daughter was misbehaving at home:
Coworker: I'm going to call my wife to see what the temperature is like in the house.
Me: *about to ask what the temperature in the house has at all to do with her behavior*.....*dawns on me that he is referring to her behavior*......oh, I see what you mean now.
- Another coworker and myself talking about a cat recuse organization:
Me: Ten Lives Club actually has cat houses for them to run free in rather than cages.
Coworker: hehe....cat house
Me: *crickets chirp*
Coworker: you do know what a cat house is, right?
- Me at 4 or so when my grandpa was opening his presents:
Grandpa: *sarcastically before opening present* I wonder what this is?
Me: *knowing what's inside - car wash certificates* it's a book of car washes!
Lol....there's plenty more, but I don't want this to go on for hours! I've had many a moment like these with family, friends and coworkers. My brother calls me Sheldon a lot hehe :) Hope you enjoyed, and feel free to share your own!
