Talk as you like… Or not

Posted on: December 10, 2010

So we’re laying in bed… ONLY TALKING 🙂

Me: Hon, what did you think of my first post?

Charlton: What post? What are you talking about?

Me: My blog. What do you mean what I’m talking about?
SIDE NOTE: It just so happens that I have a printed copy of the post under my pillow – But my post has been up for a day now – No excuse! This new democracy is a lot of work.

Charlton: Oh Lord, what did you say? Tell me now

Me: Nothing really. I just talked about a conversation we had – Here, I printed it. (I pull out the printout I did of the first post)

He begins to read it. He’s smiling and shaking his head. I’m taking that as a good sign

I can’t wait for him to finish…

Me: What do you think?

Charlton: Stop talking let me finish

Me: See, it’s not so bad

Charlton: Stop talking (smiling)

Me: I’m so excited about this

Charlton: I thought you were going to call the blog a different name?

Me: So you like the post… Yay

Charlton: Gyal u na Easy (he says this to me quite often :))

Me: But that post was not “business”

Charlton: You should call it… “Things are not always as they seem”

Me: Huh? Really? That’s too long. Plus it’s too late for that now. By the way what do you mean by that?

Charlton: I thought you were going to talk about Autism too?

Me: Yes, but this blog is about our life. Kuba is autistic, I’m not. Are you? I would have picked up on it by now (laughs)

Charlton: Stop talking

Me: Dealing with Autism is a part of our life not our entire life.

Charlton: What do you mean our entire life? So what are you going to write next?

Me: Can I talk about this conversation? SIDE NOTE: This was supposed to be an “inside” thought but it slipped

Charlton: I can’t talk freely now? (laughs) – I have to watch what I say around you. So you’re like those Facebook people now? You’re putting everything online.

Me: That’s not what I meant. I was just saying… A conversation like this is what I think would give people a peek into our life. That’s all. Facebook people…

He pulls an invisible zipper across his lips

Me: What’s that?

He shakes his head “No”

Me: What are you doing?

Charlton: I’m not talking to you. From now on I’m using sign language

Me: OMG! You’re blowing this thing out of proportion. I’m not going to talk about everything

Charlton: You’re not going to “talk” about everything. You’re going to (moves his fingers as if typing) everything

Me: You have nothing to worry about

He gives me the thumbs-down

Me: You can’t be serious with this sign language thing?

He gives me the thumbs-up

Me: So… Just checking… This conversation is ok?

He puts his hands up in the air

Me thinking: That’s almost a “yes” in sign language. Isn’t it?

Ahhh… We have a decision. You’re reading this so it’s no secret what the decision was. I’m a big fan of the “New Democracy” but the process is WEARING ME OUT!
