Her special world

A few days ago I went to a stand up comedy show in my home town. During the funny and interesting performance of the comedian, I realize that there were a old couple with a special daughter. Everything was normal in that family, but the youngest member has a brain that does not work like ours. She was in her 40s and was probably wearing his mother clothes. Different is the correct word, because she can think as we do, but the construction of the reality and the variables and dynamics of the thinking process are distinct. She is constantly in a different world that we cannot understand, and because of that we called her retarded. What caught my attention was her reaction to the jokes. Nothing, she didn’t move any face muscles. Thought we share the same physical space, we live in totally different worlds.
