#ThursThreads Week 535 : I’ll Think About It.

It’s been a long day. I’m fried. But I got a lot done. Okay. Maybe that depends on how you define a lot. Yeah, yeah. I can hear you. Inside my brain cells, you’re standing there, looking at me, screaming at me, “A lot is just that! A lot! You idiot! Don’t you know anything!”

I’d tell you, “I’ll think about it.” But I’d be lying. I won’t think about it. I’ll just call you one of those blind followers of simplicity that doesn’t understand anything more complex than an on and off switch for a desk lamp. And anyway, I know you’re not real. You’re one of those Autistic scripts that runs amuck every now and then when I’m tired, or stressed, or depressed, that tries to tell me how pathetic I am.

What if you were real? What would I say?

“Okay, smart ass. Define a lot without using the words a lot.”

That’s like asking people, “What’s the answer to the question, how are you today?”

People look at you like you’re stupid. “How can you not know the answer to that?”

Because I’m Autistic you idiot! You know what that means? All that social crap that you know by instinct? All those rules you are born understanding? All those things you know not to do? All the bad behaviors you know not to have?

For us Autistics, that doesn’t exist.

So, tell me, oh great, magnificent one. What is the definition of “a lot”?
