Friday, May 28, 2010Two days ago, M. came into work wearing green camouflage pants, a studded belt, with a fuscia top. Her shoes were tan, her purse was bright pink. Yesterday, she wore a black dress with black pants underneath.
M: "It's not easy being mentally retarded! Please respect that."
J: "Ha ha!"
M: "Respect my stomach ache!"
J: "How does one respect a stomach ache?"
M: "Ow... I can't chew."
J: "Because of your stomach ache?"
M: "Because of my braces. Jake, NO!!!"
J: "What have you learned from reading the past 10 months of your life?"
M: "You're crazy!"
J: "OK... what have you learned about yourself?"
M: "Absolutely nothing."
J: "Really? What do you hope to learn in the next 2 months, before this blog is ended?"
M: "I am more mentally retarded today than most days, Jake, so I can't think of a good answer. Let me get back to you."
