While watching TV as a family one evening, Jim Parsons, the actor who plays Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory, came on the screen. One thing lead to another and our conversation turned to Asperger's. Cody, our son who is autistic and always trying to involve himself in conversations, threw out the question, “Asperger’s and fries?”
It only took us a few seconds to realize that Cody thought we were talking about some kind of hamburger. Cody was food pairing and like peanut butter goes with jelly and macaroni goes with cheese, burgers and fries are meant to be together. After a good chuckle, we explained to Cody, “It’s Asperger’s, not Asburger’s” and clarified the difference in spelling.
Then it dawned on me. Asperger’s and Fries would be a brilliant name for my blog, considering I post mostly about autism and food. But I’m not going to change my blog’s name. I have far too many things linked to Snippets ‘N Stuff.
Cody’s “Asperger’s and Fries” would also be a splendid name for a restaurant, if I were going to open one, which I’m not…unless somebody out there wants to help out by investing money, then I’m all ears. J
