A few years ago, when pizza delivery places here started preslicing pizzas more often, I was really annoyed because I wanted to determine the size of my own slices.

When my pizza arrived just now, it took me about 30 seconds of pulling on the edges to realise it wasn’t presliced. And then another 15 seconds or so to think of a solution (knife!). And then I felt so annoyed with the pizza delivery place for not preslicing my pizza.

Until I remembered that this was how I used to like it.

I’m pretty bad at handling small changes like that. I hadn’t even realised until now. It’s not that I get an emotional meltdown or get stuck and have no way out, but the annoyance is definitely there and it does take me somewhat longer to adapt.

And all because of pizza.

Further testing

Well. At least I am a little bit autistic enough.

With regards to the intake interview you have had with my colleague on August 13th, we would like to conduct an Autism Spectrum Disorder test with you. Our office manager will call you to set up several appointments, at least one of which will be with one of your parents (to get a heteroanamnesis on your past), and one to get an anamnesis on your current situation (for this appointment we will also invite someone close to you, this has to be someone who knows you well).

So all that effort was just to see whether I even deserve to be tested? Dear lord.

And the interview with someone close to me will be interesting. I’m single. I have a few close friends but I can’t really say if any of them know me well, because I tend to downplay or hide my weaknesses. Do my friends think I’m autistic enough? I could ask my ex, he definitely agrees on me being weird. 😛

But am I supposed to be present at both those interviews? The wording seems to say (“also”) that I’m only to be there for the second test, but not the one with my mother or father. So why one and not the other? CONFUSING.
