Help me indulge a completely intrusive and possibly inappropriate curiosity.... →
The woman I'm working for, whom I really like, mentioned that she and her husband moved to the country because their son has a "disorder that makes living in the city difficult for him."
I'm really curious about what that could be, but we haven't gotten chatty enough for me to pursue it further.
My first thought was that he was somewhere on the autistic spectrum. It would make sense, right? But my brain is wanting to come up with all sorts of outlandish explanations. Is there some obvious 'disorder' that I'm not thinking of?
Look, I know it's none of my business. And I'm not wondering out of judgment or prejudice. Just wondering, because she seems really cool. I'll ask her eventually, or steer the conversation there, but until then I need my overactive imagination to settle on something. Does anything jump out at anyone?
