That Guy You Know

That guy you know, we all know someone like him.

He’s a loner, they say. He keeps to himself.

He's a bit odd and remote, with a very flat affect.

Intelligent, but nervous and fidgety. Bright, but painfully awkward. 

He has “episodes” that involve total withdrawal from whatever he’s supposed to be doing.

Somebody heard he has a disorder, and maybe it is Asperger’s syndrome. 

You don’t know who his friends are. He scares you a little, doesn’t he?
