Alex Quote

Yesterday, I had lunch with one of my friends.  When I got home, the therapist began to prompt Alex to ask where I was (this is part of his social skills training about appropriate interactions).

Therapist: Alex, ask Mom: Did you have a good time?

Alex: Yes!

Therapist: (trying not to laugh) No, Alex.  Did you have a good time?

Alex: Yes, I did!

Therapist: (now trying very hard not to laugh)  Alex, ask Mom.

Alex: Mom, did you go to lunch?

Therapist: No, did you have a good time?

Alex: Yes!

This kept going for a good five minutes, with Alex cheerfully answering the question for me every time.  Eventually he did ask me if I had a good time and I could say yes but both of us were laughing so hard, I'm not sure how the lesson sunk in.
