ST100: A Difficult Conversation by Steve Colori

“Dad, why am I different than everyone else?” James asked. He was wearing his ninja turtles outfit.

“We’re all different but we just don’t know it sometimes.”

“What’s schizomophrenium? The teacher said I have that.”

“It’s just when someone…” I exhaled slowly. “I have it too,” I wanted to say. “He’s too young for this. What am I supposed to tell him?”

“Whadya say?”

“It’s just when someone thinks a little differently.”

“But don’t we all think different.”

I couldn’t help but smile. I sipped my coffee. “I suppose we do.”

“So does everyone have schizomophrenium?”

“I guess they do.”
