An aspie friend phones me whilst I’m cooking dinner. I set the phone down in my kitchen and put it on speaker phone. I make dinner whilst chatting (hey, I'm multi-tasking!).
My friend not only figures out that I’m cooking, but identifies the vegetable is carrots (by the sound of the chop) and also when my stir fry is ready to eat (by the sizzle)! He tells me that carrots have a particular sound being chopped, which is different to onions, parsnips etc.
He advises me to sharpen my knife as it is obvious I’m putting too much force into the chopping.
Some conversations could only be had between aspies!
