If you haven’t seen Captain Marvel, go see that first, then come back.
Ok, since you’re squared up on that:
Early on, Carol quizzes Nick Fury about a personal quirk so obscure that it would be impossible to fabricate.
And this “autistic-flavored” quirk came to mind.
Which is rare, because so many other regular ones do.
I only use travel-sized toothpastes for brushing my teeth.
I drink water from a mason jar and milk from a coffee mug.
I literally shudder/cringe at someone rubbing bare skin on carpet
but none top this whopper:
If that ain’t the most embarrassing thing ever.
But it’s become so common, leading to exchanges like:
Mo: Daddy, why do you itch and smell your hair?
Me: I —
My wife: Because it smells like ramen.
Mo: Does that smell good?
Me: OK, I — well, yeah, but I —
My sister took note of it once, saying that it’s actually some autistic soothing and smell fixation thing.
And with my poor sense of smell, look, I like when they stand out.
So yeah, it’s part-stim, part-soothe, part-fixation – whatever: I do have the hair to spare!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to boil some ramen ^_^
