CAPD CARTOON: Thai Food

CAPD Central Auditory Processing Disorder

Despite excellent hearing, I misunderstand what people say all day long.

I’m standing in the kitchen next to a bulletin board full of take-away menus, waiting for the kettle to boil to make some more tea. My husband (off-panel) asks, “Is it ‘Typhoo Time’?” Experiencing yet another decoding error, I ask back, “Thai food?”

FACEBLIND CARTOON: Oops, Staring

FACEBLIND CARTOON_Oops-Staring-27

Cartoon of myself (a middle-aged white woman wearing glasses, a fedora and trenchcoat) and a man riding on a bus. The man has a very pronounced nose, chin, and jowls; he is wearing a coat, scarf, and cap. The caption reads: Prosopagnosia (Faceblindness) is the inability to recognise people by their faces. Sometimes having an unusual feature helps me eventually learn to identify a person. But it also means that I unintentionally tend to stare at some people.
