Break Your Fast, Break Your Gaze

(I’m autistic. In the holidays, I often get caught up doing stuff in the morning and forget to have breakfast. This is one such morning, as my mum is leaving for work.)

Mum: “[My Name], have you had breakfast yet?”

Me: “No.”

Mum: “Have a yogurt! Pop, watch her have a yogurt.”

(My mum leaves and I get a yogurt. I sit down at the table.)

Pop: *comes and stands next to me, staring*

Me: “I’m pretty sure she didn’t mean it literally.”

Pop: *continues to stare*

Me: “Fine, suit yourself.”
