Some things I think about are…Why are some things so funny? I have a sense of humor, or at least think I do. However, when watching a comic and they say things like, “It was slick as owl snot” or a comic says "imagine walking through the forest and you hear 'whoo whoo'" then a loud sniff and everyone laughs. I am still trying to figure out what is so funny.
When I hear whoo-whoo, I think of an owl making his noise and then a loud sniff, I think of someone sniffing loudly. OK- not so funny … But then I think, why would an owl’s snot be any slicker than any others snot to begin with? Or is it? Why was it funny? Of course, by this time I have completely lost why it would be funny to begin with, so why bother.
I can find humor in a lot of things but when I see something like someone doing something and getting hurt and everyone bursts out laughing, my first question is why would someone do that if he knew it was going to hurt? Then I get the look or comment from my hubby that says “Are you seriously asking that?” Well yes, I actually am. If I didn’t want to know why would I ask it? Of course missing completely the whole point of the joke.
My husband says I miss the point of jokes and cannot see something as funny like everyone else… well, I guess I just don’t understand...
Other things I don’t understand…
Why ask a question only not to want an answer??? My hubby says it's rhetorical… OK, but again, why ask it if you don’t seriously want an answer?
Something else I don’t understand….People say "just answer yes or no…" Well, problem being it's not always as simple as yes or no… Many times I honestly feel there needs to be some sort of explanation…. Hubby says I am incapable of answering yes or no. OK, maybe I can’t. Sometimes it takes more words for me to explain myself even if you think I am being redundant… OK, so I repeat myself a lot.
Also all this imagine stuff…. I have never gotten the imagine thing…. Like when people do the meditation thing. I don’t get it. Why would you think if a place to make you calm? Why imagine a stream or a tree?? Honestly, if you want to see a tree go see a tree or a stream or beach. Don’t ask me to imagine - I will go look at a picture if I want to see something. I’m not going to try to see it in my head….to me that is just strange.
Or the whole playing thing... OK, hide and seek, fine - that’s easy, it's hide and seek, but why take a Barbie and pretend to talk to another Barbie per se? Why not just talk to a person? Not like they will answer you...
I guess I am very literal in a lot of ways. Ask me to do something fine, I will, but don’t ask me if you really don’t want or expect me to do it.

Ok most will find that an odd title, but those with autistic quiet as ninja runners know exactly what that means.
My sweet PA loves to go to Target (well so does her mom *smiling*), but rarely do I attempt this by my self. We truthfully I wasn't alone, but I decided to take her with me so my husband could look at toys and I would not have to worry about PA wanting something. I wanted to go look at cloths for PA & she loves to look at clothes, so I thought why not.
Started out fine....She stayed close and was easy to control. However when we passed in her words “ballerina dress” (a pink swim suit with a pink tutu) she liked, all bets were off. I didn’t have a very hard time getting her to hang it back on the rack., so I thought I dodged a meltdown. I did dodge the meltdown, but that’s where she started to show her “ninja skills” I was talking about. See she really knew she is suppose to stay with me, but when she sees something *shinny** as we say.. She can not help herself.
I turned around to look at something not even for 3 seconds turned back and she was gone.. Of course first thought is to call out for her, but with PA wouldn’t make any difference. See she is verbal, but will not answer unless she is looking at you and wants to acknowledge you.. So I thought real fast and remembered the “ballerina dress”. I made a b-line and sure enough she was standing there with the bathing suit dancing around.. It was a happy ending and I really didn’t have to go far to find her. Of course she got a talking to and had to sit in the basket for the remainder of the shopping trip, but reinforced to me the need of the leash when we go shopping.
As far as her ninja skills. Yes, she is truly that quiet not only when she is trying to escape. She is also has ninja skills when destroying a room. You never know until you walk in the room. Even though you have been in the next room for 2 minutes, but I will revisit her ninja skills in a later post..
I took this directly from my website blog post, because I did'nt want to write two LOL...
