Break a leg and take a pee

Break a leg

I know I am autistic when I want to wish someone good luck in their performance, so I wrote “Break a leg” but then I deleted it and wrote “All the best” instead because I’m afraid that person will take me literally, and the reason I’m afraid that person will take me literally is because when I say those words, I have the literal image of a person who broke his legΒ πŸ˜–, which would make it a really, really awful thing for me to say!πŸ˜‚

Red Light 🚦 Green Light🚦

I remembered an incident that happened when I was in kindergarten school, about 5 or 6 years old. We were playing a game of “Red Light, Green Light” and I remembered being told to stop moving when the caller said “Red Light” and turned around. If we were caught moving, we were out. “Red Light!” Everyone stopped moving. I stopped moving. The problem was I needed to go to the bathroom urgently. Why was this a problem? Well, I wasn’t supposed to move, remember? I didn’t know what to do and nobody had instructed us what to do in such a situation, all I knew was I can’t move when “Red Light” was called. You can guess what happened in the end. I wet myself.πŸ˜‚

  1. It’s bad luck to wish someone luck in theater. That’s why we always say “break a leg”. I can see how the literal mind could be stumped by that bit of superstition.πŸ˜‚
    My goodness, all preschool and kindergarten (even older grade levels) teachers should always explain about the potty rules. Little ones don’t always pay attention to when they have to go until they HAVE TO GO!! I guess that was a “yellow light”? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Can’t they find another expression that is less painful? πŸ˜‚ I just came across a news of a musical performer at the Sydney Opera House who twisted his ankle during the show. Ouch! Or should I say Oops! πŸ˜‚
