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?

  4. Thanks for the octopus dancing Gangnam Style -- by far one of the best images I've seen all week. Happy holidays, and thanks for providing a great way to help my mom welcome a new "That Guy You Know" to her church.

    I'll be spending it with cookies in both hands and my butt backed up to a nice warm fireplace.
    Aaaaah, sweet!
