Eavesdropping

Overheard at a family gathering of Bubba's entire clan. Lola and her cousin had snuck away from the chaos of the other kids to do something quieter. Her cousin, while male and 13, is on the spectrum, so Lola loves to spend time with him. They 'get' each other.

Lola: What should we do?
Cousin: I don't know.
Lola: Wanna draw pictures?
Cousin: Nah.
Lola: That's okay. I'm not very good at it, anyway.

Cousin: Wanna talk?
Lola: Nah.
Cousin: That's okay. I'm not very good at it, anyway.

They both cracked up laughing and fell out of their chairs.

Yup, they 'get' each other.
