Me: Now that Boo has a place of their own, I’m taking the opportunity to go through our apartment, clear out things we don’t need anymore, and enjoy the new space. Last month, I culled about five hundred books from our shelves and boxed them up. Thank goodness I don’t have to lug them anywhere. I found a used bookstore that picks up donations as long as there are at least four boxes – that way, it’s worth their while to make the drive. I just had to fill out an online form and then they called me to make the appointment to come by.
My friends: You got rid of FIVE HUNDRED books?
The entire autistic population: You made arrangements to have boxes picked up???
