Gift of Autism 3: Autistacular

I am my own normal, which incidentally sometimes goes against the flow of society. Quite often, as a matter of fact.


Autistacular: Adj. The joy exhibited by an Autistic person when they notice something hilarious about the world that no one else has noticed.

I get asked semi-frequently “Don’t you wish she was normal?”

I can understand why you would ask that. I drive a Toyota when I’d rather have a Mercedes. I eat peanut butter sandwiches when I’d prefer steak. I live under capitalism when I’d rather be free. I rent when I’d rather own.

Do I wish she was normal?No. (It is just a little offensive that you asked.)

Would you ask a friend with children:

“Don’t you wish they were taller?” “Wouldn’t you rather a boy?” “Don’t you wish they were blonde?” “Don’t you wish they weren’t ugly?” “Don’t you wish they could walk already?” “Don’t you wish they weren’t so fat?”

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
