For Autism “Awareness” Month, I’m telling thirty inspiring short stories about an inspirational autistic person – me! Thrill at my incredible exploits…with autism!
An autistic woman was spotted remembering to pick up a gallon of milk at a local Costco this weekend, according to shoppers.
“It was amazing,” said longtime Costco member Ivar Saavol. “She was standing there in front of the milk cooler with a normal person, and all of a sudden, she said ‘I think we’re almost out of milk, too.’ And the normal person said ‘Yeah, we are.'”
“I’ve never been so inspired,” said local housewife Raine Mann, wiping away a tear. “My little boy has been touched by a diagnosis consistent with placement on or near the spectrum of autistic-like conditions as well, and it gives me hope that someday he too will remember that we are out of milk.”
Rumors that the autistic woman also remembered that her household was out of baking soda could not be confirmed by press time.
