It takes a certain type of person to appreciate goats. Let’s face it, for some of us, all they do is eat, poop, and are generally nasty. But some others just love them despite, or maybe because of these characteristics. I think the same thing kinda applies to Aspies too. We, on the Autism spectrum, are blunt with our words and sometimes incorrigible. We don’t look you in the eye, so something must be wrong with us.
I’m sure it takes a certain type of person to marry, or even be a close friend, with an Aspie. I was fortunate enough to have found someone like that. She put up with me for 36 years. Looking back I appreciated her more than I sadly ever let her know. May she rest in peace.
