Not Alone

I saw a guy standing behind a tree, out of sight of his group.

I called over:
"Hey, what're you doing?"



"I guess so."

"Don't like crowds?"


"Do you have Asperger's Syndrome?"

He looked astonished.
"How did you know?"

"Because I'm like that, and I have Asperger's Syndrome.
Really! That was just a crazy shot in the dark.

"I'm going to ask you a question, and I want you to be truthful, because I'm genuinely curious:

Do you like videogames?

"I have a theory, that there isn't anyone with Asperger's Syndrome who doesn't like videogames."

"It's a solitary thing, and it's a way to vent frustration. That's probably why."

"So what's your thing?"
He thought about it.

"You know what I mean."

"Yeah, I do.





It's only occurring to me now that he might not have known what I meant. Oh well.
