Then stayed til she awoke and comforted her and well it ended up that they hooked up. The punchline, if you want to call it that was that she got preg...

Never did that kind of job, but I've worked with delivering newspapers and selling bakery on the street. For me, it is OK with fast pace, in fact I prefer it to be fast paced when the job isn't too intelectually challenging. I'm sure others will chime in, but my first reaction was why not try it? Th...

I learned that my son had a diagnosis of Aspergers about 5 years ago and started researching. I knew nothing of Aspergers/Autism before that, but the more I researched the more traits that fit me I found, in particular when I was a child and teenager. I've learned to cope/mask quite well over the ye...

I dislike it, mostly the colors I guess, I also dislike when people color the word spectrum in rainbow colors.
But it's not important to me.

I believe that joke was reused by Herge when someone asked Captain Haddock if he slept with his beard above or below the blanket.

As long as you don't overdo it. It may come off as an excuse for being rude otherwise. That kind of joking may take a bit of fingertop feeling that some of us just don't have, I know I have faulted in this area in the past. If you know them well enough and can read the signals they send out you shou...

I don't think I ever minded colors being mixed. However, different foods should not touch. I can eat it anyways now, but I dislike it. Also, it should be proportionate, if there's too much potatoes and too little ham, I struggle to eat that extra bit of potatoes. I usually divide the different foods...
