Dangerous Compassions

shit pic

“I gotta send that shit pic to you,” Ming said.

“Oh, good.  Thank you.  Yeah, I need that shit.  That shit is going to be useful to me.”

[Pile of horse shit on some sandy earth.]
We were walking around a pond, and I asked him to photograph a pile of horse shit for me.  I thought I could use it to make a fantastic meme.  Since then I’ve made multiple memes from it, in my head.

Please feel free to steal this horse shit pic and make a meme from it.  It can go fecal-y transmitted viral.

Laughing, I just read that to Ming.  “Is that gross?” I asked.

“Yeah, that’s gross.”

“Is it too gross?  Is it worth it?”

“That’s great.  It’s worth it,” he comforted me.

“Hey, can I ask you a question?” I asked Ming.

“Yeah,” he said.

“If I wear my pants inside out, is that embarrassing, for you?”  I prefer my clothes inside out in general, because they are less stressful that way.  I have sensory issues possibly related to autism, so seams and tags hurt me.

“If you wear your pants upside down, that’s–”

“No, I said inside out,” I corrected him.  I tried to remember if I had said upside down on accident.

“Yeah, but… If you wear your pants upside down, that would be weird.”

“Wait–how could I wear my pants upside down?”

“That would be a trip hazard,” he said.

“Wait, I don’t get it,” I said.  “Are you making a joke?  I can’t visualize this.”

“So basically, no.  I don’t feel embarrassed if you wear your pants inside out.”

“Ok, good,” I said.

When he asks me to imagine things I can’t imagine, that’s fun sometimes or just confusing.  Sometimes I don’t feel strong enough to be confused.


Oh, I think I get it now.  The ankle part would be around my upper thighs.  That wouldn’t really fit.  And yeah, it would be a trip hazard.  The waist part would be by my feet.

Yep–dangerous, sweetie.  Thanks for the tip.
