I find that I don’t get nearly as offended about SZ jokes or references as some of my family who is not SZ. Some of them get really upset at what I think is funny.
For a while I was doing everything I can to remember my meds. But for a while I was missing my night time dose. My kid sis first started putting them in a martini glass with a note… “Shaken not stirred” (James Bond) that amused me. Then she found other little quotes from other books I like. It’s like fortune cookie meds. Now I’m looking forward to the book reference at the bottom of the glass that I am remembering to take my meds more easily. I think this whole thing is funny. I call it a med cocktail… Why not a martini glass? But I have some family who is mortified that my sis and I would take such a silly view of something as serious as my meds.
Halloween I really wanted the kid sis to be Lucy with her booth.
The kid sis made the booth out of cardboard and dressed up like lucy and passed out candy and advice on the little patch of lawn in front of our house and one of my family couldn’t believe how “insensitive” my sis was being. I was highly amused. (She even made a sincere pumpkin patch so I could be Linus.)
