autism awareness 2012
Some of you are well aware that I have an autistic sister. Some of you were not aware of that fact until this very moment. Being that April is Autism Awareness Month, I just thought I’d pass along that little tid-bit of info. During this month, I will be posting my favorite photos of my sister, Angelica. Accompanying the photos will be hilarious Ang-isms. I hope she brings as much laughter to your lives as she does to mine.
Here’s a preview:
Rosario / Angelica / Cecilia
Staten Island Ferry, July 2011
Ang-ism: Last year, Angelica and Rosario visited me for an entire month! On their first night in town, we were all getting ready for bed. I took my contacts out and said something about how I prefer wearing contacts and that I don’t wear my glasses very often.
Angie interjected, “Well ya look like a four-eyed freak in ’em! I’M KIDDING!” She barely finished her first sentence before the second part burst out. Her filter works once in a while… but there’s still a delay!
The three of us about died laughing! And that became our catch phrase for the rest of their visit.
