Autism Acceptance… begins at home, here.

Six guys with annoying habits and quirky interests.  Six guys who have difficulty accepting other people’s annoying habits and quirky interests. But these guys love each other, they really do. They miss each  other.  They help each other.  They forgive each other.  They are good friends, loyal friends.  They ACCEPT each other……

Their musical tastes range from death metal to christian rock, 70’s music to broadway musicals. Someone gets up at 630AM and bangs around in the shower next to another’s bedroom who went to bed at 2AM.  One makes loud sudden sharp whooping noises when it is least expected, causing others to drop to the floor in shock, hands covering their ears.   One collects Barbie dolls and designs clothes for them.  One has Tourettes and swears often.  The Christian guys hate swearing and dislike any behavior that has a hint of femininity. Another melts down loudly at the word ‘WAIT‘, which is inadvertently repeated by everyone else, several times every day.  Two are very religious, another is an atheist and recites the historical significance of every religious event that refutes Christianity.  They are determined to convert each other, and very sure that they are right and the other is wrong. A deep monotone baritone that drones.. on and on and on about scientific facts in great detail is ever-present.  Often, impulse control is non-existent and they steal from each other.  Accommodating food sensitivities always makes someone else unhappy. Everyone believes in a right way and a wrong way for everything. But no one agrees on what that is. Television preferences include Anime cartoons, Sci-fi, History, Discovery, old Abbott and Costello, chick flicks with Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise, Mr Bean, and the Weather Channel.  No one agrees on what to watch.  Oh, wait a minute, except Mr. Bean.  They all agree.  Everyone thinks Mr. Bean rocks.

  4. Hi Rin,

    This is a story that I wrote about the guys that I live with here at Juniper Hill Farms… they disagree on a lot of the things that they like to do, but they all love Mr Bean!
