1. If you were to be executed, what would you request for your last meal?
2. I was in the doctor's office, waiting room (waiting on someone) today, and this guy came in. Apparently a relative or acquaintance of the nurse. They chatted for a bit, then he left. The way he talked was interesting.. She asked what he was doing there (apparently he had stopped by to pick up some CDs from her), and he answered by pointing at his head and saying: "Ears" (meaning, I suppose, listening). She asked him about his schedule for the day, and he recited the numbers 1 through 12 a few times, counting up on the clock to inform her at what time he'd do something ("One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve... one, two" meant two o'clock in the afternoon, for example). Took her a few tries to understand what he was saying, but she seemed to handle it well, so she must be familiar with that speech pattern...
What was wrong with him? Anyone familiar with that?
