A nice dry White Rhone wine.



Oh, dammit. I was going to see about juggling some cash around and see if I could get it. Guess the decision was made for me.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Yeah see, I got a stepkid with Aspergers. I don't need to watch TV to see that kind of thing. From the little bit I've seen of the show, that Sheldon guy = Aspergers.

Not so bad if they just went around in a circle. It was the banging into things that caused all the problems.

True, but it's also more than that - Sheldon is amazingly self-centred, arrogant, and childish. Yet somehow you are forced to like him...

Um, those are classic Asperger traits. The 15yr old has the emotional maturity of your average 8 year old and truly believes he is the greatest thing that has ever happened to the planet. Basically, Asperger people can't empathize and can't read body language. I will have the most bored expression in history on my face when he drones on about a video game and he can't pick up on it. I have to actually say "bowtie's stepson, I'm not trying to be mean, but i'm really no longer interested in this conversation." Within two minutes, we'll be having that same conversation again. And by conversation I mean he'll be talking at me and I'll be paying no attention whatsoever. He also figures that if he want's to do something that means EVERYONE wants to do what he's doing because he's AWESOME. It's painful to watch him try to interact with other people because if they won't do what he wants them to do he gets all bent out of shape.

That has got to be very difficult!! We have several children at school who have "issues" the thing that kills me is the parents wont accept that their child has an issue and needs extra help... so if it is not documented by a doc... child gets no services and is labeled as "difficult". We all know said child needs extra help...but can't give it to them because we have 18 other students that are learning "on tract"...
