As I may have mentioned, I usually work from home, typically on the front porch.
As I may also have mentioned, we have this lesbian couple living next door to us. They adopted a baby a while back, and for some reason now have a 30ish autistic woman living with them as well*. Typically in the morning I would see her walking back and forth, either reading or talking on the phone or talking to herself or something while she hacked up phlegm.
Over the weekend we threw a party by the pool and invited them, since their adopted child is about the same age as my youngest spawn. As a result of this I was trapped into a brief conversation with the autist.
Unfortunately, now that she knows my name, she feels free to talk to me when she sees me on the porch, since “we know each other”.
* They used to be fostering a 9ish girl, but apparently she was replaced.
