Autism Diaries: Quotables

A text exchange with Mommy, who somehow misplaced the lettuce she'd shredded for salad:

Did you find the lettuce?
No. Please clean up your room.
I sometimes have the same problem with homework, I thought I did it but I realized I didn't. 
In response to a query about why his paper was loose in his backpack rather than in its assigned folder:
Looks like I put it in the water instead of the boat.

oh my gosh - that's incredible (water, not boat)

did he come up with that on his own?

is it a metaphor his teachers use?


(if it's something his teachers came up with, good for them, too)

I googled water, not boat, earlier and found nothing. He claims it's his own, original metaphor!
