So we were heading home from the store with hamburger fixins, and Drew says, "Remember that cartoon we saw the other day? The one with the stand-up comedian talking about the mentally challenged couple crossing the street?" (fair warning - the cartoon is adorable but the language is NSFW)
I said yes.
"Well I saw them the other day."
"You SAW THEM?"
"Yes. There was a little round lady and a skinny guy walking along, and they were looking at each other, all romantic, and he lifted her little hand up and kissed it."
"Ahh. So then nothing bad could happen that day after you saw that."
And that made me think: "What a joy it must be, after being made fun of all your life, and after so many people treating you like a retard, to finally find somebody who thinks you are awesome."
Drew: "That's how I was in high school when I met you."
Me: "No, really. What would it be like if everybody around you was like a nuclear physicist and you couldn't understand what people were talking about unless they went 'SIGH' and talked slowly and pretend-patiently at you?"
Drew: "That's how I am now."
