On Slowing Down

A large platter will hold a surprising amount of vomit. Like, at first you’d think it’s going to automatically spill over the edges, but when you start to factor in the viscosity of the regurgitate, the rotundity of the dish, and the overall surface area, you’d really be surprised at how much puke will fit […]

Friendshipping Steroids

It’s weird to have a spectrum disorder be the glue that binds us together with strangers. So much of the time we rely on hobbies, or sports teams, or favorite Netflix Originals to bridge the gap between small talk and budding friendships. But we almost never think about the possibility that pain, or hardship, or […]
