Song Playing: I Am Me by: Willow Smith
"You don't suffer from Asperger syndrome, you suffer from other people." Hello, I am Christopher John Francis Boone. I am exactly 15 years, 3 month, and 2 days old. I know all of the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. I hate being touched. I once punched a cop (accidently) because he touched me and it made me feel uncomfortable. I have Aspergers. It is a form of Autism. But I'm not stupid. I like to think that I am very intelligent compared to most. But there is one ting that everyone seems to understand besides me, Human Emotions. I don't feel them and I don't understand them. This is why I like dogs so much. You always know what you are going to get with a dog. They have predictable behavior. I am also very observant and notice thing that most others do not. Unfortunately, I am way too trusting, and I really hate the color yellow.
I had already opened four letters from my mother. My living breathing mother. I couldn't open any more. I felt a rush of a thousand emotions surging through-out my body, but I still don't know what they are or what they mean. I try to piece together all the information Siobhan gave me, to try and make sense of what is happen, but I quickly get frustrated and give up. My mother is alive, and my father has been hiding it from me for years. But why? I instantly feel sick to my stomach. I crawled up into a ball on my bed and rocked trying to make the pain subside. I must have been laying there for a while because when I sat up it was dark. I had lost all sense of time. I needed to do something about this, father had messed up badly and I have to get away from him. I am going to London to stay with my mother to make up for lost time. And that's final.
Like I already said before, I think that I am smart. I love dogs and hate the color yellow. I like logical things like math and prime umbers. I don't understand human emotions. I don't feel them either. I hate being touched, and I hate being laughed at. That pretty much sums me up.
