RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
Wow - I didn't speak until 3, either! And then, it was a complete sentence. I never shut up after that, apparently. Shy

But that's a story for never.

As for the Bacon... I dunno. Honestly, I only had my first bacon within memory a month or so back and kinda liked it... I'll just have a little, as opposed to a shitton.

Can I adopt you?

Why on Earth would you want to do that?

If you can't find any appeal to such a silly thing as Halloween, you have no soul.

Okay, well you don't have a soul. However, life is too fucking short and too fucking arbitrarily absurd to not be able to appreciate the humor in disrobing oneself from rationality and reason every great once in a while in order to engage in the absolute imagination.

Let's face it, imagination is what we are.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm not good with imagination, I barely have any at all thanks to my tendency to analyse what I see, hear and read (patterns, man). I am fine with barely-functioning escapist mechanisms.

I don't think you can adopt a person who is already under legal care by biological parents and besides, I can't see myself going to Fuck-Knows-Where, USA in the middle of my education.
However, I can see myself going to the US for a while; I will gladly take your money and perhaps bacon in such an instance... Angel

Didn't speak until you were 3. Over-analytical. Lack of imagination. Tendency to take things literally (observed during Skype calls).

Let me guess...
Reclusive?
Not good at interpreting others' facial expressions and moods?
As a child, liked to arrange toys rather than play with them?
-->
Asperger's?

A future internationally renowned, nomadic, expert in best practice processes with a girl in every town/city because you will be good at listening and helping solve their problems?

"Up until now everything has been satisfactory."

Not really a small thing, but it never fails to make me smile. Wish the English alphabet was at least 60 letters long Big Grin






@Mr. Woof: I think the dog is just fine Wink The man looks sad, though...

... the saddest thing is how much easier.. well, not easier, but less hard... it is not to give anything than it was when I was a child. Innocence's dying in so many ways Undecided

Asperger's was suspected by a psych that tested me at the behest of my school in Yr. 8 but that possibility was never followed up (as a note, the psych did conclude I had 'dyscalculia' though).

I don't know about that one, I'd rather be left alone to my own devices than listen to people and their problems, let alone solving them...
