Me: Can I give you a muffin?
Frances: Gypsy moths are an invasive species.
Me: Okay. Here’s a muffin.
Because it remains a challenge for Frances, her social/pragmatic language often produces very unusual exchanges between us.
This one caught me off guard one recent morning, and I had to stifle a giggle.
I will always help as much as possible to make being with others easier, yet this is one facet of her personality that I absolutely adore.
