Let’s play a fun game that I just invented! It’s called “Guess The Autistic.” I’ll provide you with a snippet of conversation and you’ll guess which participant is the one afflicted with a disorder often characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction.

Scene: A party thrown by a documentary production company. Person One and Person two have both been hovering around the food table awkwardly, looking around but not actually talking to anyone.

Person One: It looks like you know about as many people here as I do.

Person Two: I know people here.

minimal small talk.

Person: Actually, I don’t mean to be rude, but I really want to talk to those people over there. I’ll come back and talk to you.
