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?
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?
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.
