Apologies if this has been mulled over a thousand times I take loads of things literally. The obvious one being jokes. Someone will joke about something and I will take it really personally. Other types of jokes I give serious answers too. The other day a guy at work asked if I was going to share my biscuits. I went on a long rant about how I have never liked sharing food and how much I love biscuits and how it was nothing personal to him, etc. But then he was like, "I was only kidding!" and walked off laughing, making me feel really stupid. Also though, it's not just jokes. You know when someone says "Put this shell to your ear, you can hear the ocean"? As a child (as young as nursery school) I used to put it to my ear and frown because I didn't get it. How could I possibly hear the ocean in a shell? What's more embarrassing is that I only realised what this was all about because I asked my other half about it and what people meant by it. I only asked this the other week!!! For years I felt like I had been missing out on something so simple! Is this an AS thing or am I just taking life too seriously?
