    Yes, I realize there is no “b” in Aspergers. It was a typo. I have a tendency to add the “b” by accident.

    Candles deserve much respect. I am glad we have none in my home any longer (except birthday cake candles).

    (grin)…. yes, you are right…. it is of course, “Car 54”. In the pipe is only a vanillia tinctured burley leaf. I have never had the opportunity to sample the more greener leaf, so I have no idea what that is like.

    Aspberger’s Syndrome is not really a condition that would manifest in this fashion. There would be a relative a) lack of affect, b) far less “shyness” which Gunther shows regularly and is a strong indication of social “awareness” and c) Gunther shows significant artistic ability. These three reasons suggest strongly that Gunther does not have Aspberger’s Syndrome.

    Aspberger’s Syndrome is a higher “functioning” form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism is much more associated with social DISENGAGEMENT. To suggest that a person who is shy, “geeky” or not “suave” in social situations must be “Aspberger’s” is quite a bit of a stretch.

    Aspbergers? I do not think so. Why is it surprising to find that Guther is a bit caught off guard about this situation…. 1) he is far away, 2) his mother apparently did not reveal this to him earlier and she seemed a bit uncomfortable ABOUT revealing the information, 3) it seems she had not dated at all since Gunther’s father exited. Those three things make Guther’s response, while not particularly graceful or considerate, or well-thought out…. perfectly normal in terms of typical responses.

    I think calling him “Mr. Gray” in front of the kids is a rather common sort of way of introducing adults to younger people in many backgrounds. It was commonly the way my parents would introduce new people of their age to me even when I was in my mid-late 20s. It is a formal introduction that is meant to be respectful of the person’s age and station in life compared to who he is being introduced to.

    She is addressing him as “Mr. Gray” for the benefit of the kids. When she is talking with him in other venues, she would use his first name.

    I completely agree with Joe! It was a major point of contention between my wife and I when we first married. I am glad that she and I are now in agreement… NO LIT CANDLES in the house other than those that are on birthday cakes.

    When you stated Engine 53, it also made me laugh because I thought of both “Car 51” (The old Fred Gwynne series where he was a police officer) and “Station 51” on the show “Emergency”.
