It is Halloween night.
Door bell rings.
A little girl standing there, dressed in a store bought costume, not saying a word but gave you the dead stare.
You try to complement her about her costume; she is still not saying a word.
No big deal, she may be just a little shy.
You present her with a large bucket of full size candy bars filled with sugar and chocolate.
She takes one.
You tell her that she can have as many as she wants.
She does not say a word but started to chew on the candy bar with wrappers still intact.
She is chewing and chewing.
You are concerned about her health and safety, so you tell her that the wrapper is not edible and she should remove the wrapper off first.
She stopped chewing.
Instead of peel the wrapper off with both hands, she starts to shake the candy bar violently, and hoping the centripetal force from each shake would slowly push the candy bar out of its wrapper.
You are somewhat disturbed by the child’s odd behavior, but luckily her mother shows up (she was talking on the cellphone in the driveway).
You ask her what is wrong with the little girl.
She replies: “Um, yeah, she is autistic…”
Soon after they left and the front door is fully closed, would you laugh?
