My friend Valerie has written something wonderful.
I was responding to a friend I made online yesterday, a few minutes ago. When I got done, I looked back over the email and thought to myself,
“I ought to stick this in a column.” Thus, here we are.
She was telling me about her family; how all of her brothers are on varying levels of the autistic spectrum, and how she’s the odd one because she’s not.
So, being that I’m the Odd One Out and all, I thought I’d respond. Oh, and the reason for the interest in the autistic spectrum is because I recently got diagnosed as having Asperger’s Syndrome. It sure makes things click a lot better than they did before.
Some of you may know some of what I’m going to write, but I don’t think I’ve ever written it completely out at one time.
Here’s my response: Odd One Out
