Peterism 2

Bill: “Peter, you need a haircut.”

Peter: “NOOOO. What is a Peter without his curls?”

He has asked this in the past. I know most people talk about Peter’s curls and his teachers and aides have a tough time resisting a quick rub of his head. I guess Peter truly identifies himself with his curls. That worries me a bit based on the number of family members that talk about the curls they HAD.

The other night Peter talked with Bill and me for about 90 minutes, 90 minutes straight. At one point, I looked at Bill, who had left the room for a few minutes and said, “He has been going for about 90 minutes now.” Peter looked up and said, “Who me?” And then silence. Silence for almost 5 minutes. I said, “You know, Peter that did not mean you have to stop talking. I was enjoying talking with you.” He said, “Well, I am not done yet.” And then went on to tell me about several more television shows. Apparently, he knows when every show he has seen happened because he reads the copyright at the end. If he can’t remember, he tries to find it on YouTube or Netflix to scroll to the end.
