My mom is visiting from Montana, we went to Popham Beach and to my dad's to swim in the lake today.
Funny moment that I thought just might worth be posting here...
A friend of my dad's made jello shots at the house today. Instantly that little buzzer went off in my head and I remembered the very interesting piece of info I recently learned about jello and figured this was a good time to share it. The funny part was that everyone in the house was properly grossed out to find out that gelatin is made up of ground up animal bones except for my dad. Surprised, he looked at my mom, confirmed to her what I had said in an offhand manner, and said "You didn't know that? I thought everyone knew that, that it was kind of in their store of general information." (And I don't think he was joking.) Score one for the "How To Tell If You're an Aspie (or have Aspie traits) category, lol.
My dad is not by any means diagnosed, but let's just say that I don't think some of the unique similarities I have with him are coincedental.... in many ways we definitely think the same way! Which I like.
He Didn't Believe Me
