I was at my volunteering club, talking to a mother and her 7-year old child.
the story of me yelling across the street mid-bounce from my
trampoline, by way of meeting my new neighbour S (see a few posts ago),
and how the neighbour had said she'd already read my website so wasn't
in the least bit surprised about the trampoline.
The 7-year old
looks at me in horror.
"Debi, that's not how you introduce yourself to a
"No!" The child imitates
knocking on a door, smiling and saying "hello", to teach me how it's done.
Great, I'm now learning normal social interaction from an
NT 7-year old!
"Oh, darling, you're very boring" says tactful Mum to
child. "Debi's way was more interesting".
