The scene: Pile of clean towels on the bannister at the bottom of the stairs. They’ve just toppled over. Now lying at the bottom of the stairs. I’m on my way down. Son is about to come up.
Me: Oi! Don’t you dare just step over those towels.
Son: What do you mean?
Me: I mean don’t even think about stepping OVER the towels.
Son (totally confused) … stands both feet carefully ON the towels.
Note to self: Aspergers: very literal. Pedantic. Little understanding of nuances.
I think I nearly pee’d I laughed so much. I should’ve known better. Bless him. Fabulous.
