Goblins ate us.


Categories: Personal Autism

So, I’m autistic. My spouse is autistic. Our housemate is autistic. And this means that sometimes, all three of us are socialed out and cannot handle social interactions. Least of all social interactions with strangers, which are not on a clearly defined schedule.

Problem: Today was a very exciting day with lots of mandatory socials and phone calls. And also. There were kids, who wanted candy.

Solution: A bowl of candy on the steps, containing a sign: “Goblins ate us. They left candy. Take one.”

There was still candy after an hour or two, eventually it ran out.
