Where wild minds come to rest
This morning I was sitting at the TV having my breakfast. My mother went out shopping, so I was alone in the kitchen.
I suddenly began to fall into a fantasy where I was being interviewed in a talk show about my life long struggles with Asperger Syndrome and how I am overcoming it very slowly. I began talking towards the TV with my hands waving around while eating and sipping my coffee. In my head, I was talking to a talk show host in front of a big audience of people and cameras all around. I imagined former classmates, friends, family and peers were listening in on what I had to say on their TV screens in their homes. I even began to laugh aloud all alone on the kitchen island. If my mom had walked in, she would have wondered what was 'funny' and who I was talking to. Any normal social butterfly that's not family, if standing in the kitchen, would have been horrified by this.
