I TRIED

me: so does todd want to write a blog against disablism guest post?
today?
todd: oh dear.
todd: what is the idea?
me: it's okay I just wondered, since I didn't have anything to say myself because I was too happy
todd: maybe todd could answer a couple of questions and there could be an interview instead of a blog post.
me: Yeah! I could interview you! What do you want me to interview you about?
todd: hmmmm
me: it has to be about ableism
do you want to talk about problems at school?
DO YOU WANT A FAKE NAME?
todd: hahaha!
i probably...
just a sec...
me: I mean, I like your name
todd: toddynho?
me: I just thought if you minded. but I guess a lot of people are named todd
but I like your name!
todd: also, it's SOOOO annoying to be called "[firstname]" all the time.
me: your name is Todd
people call you [Firstname]?
todd: like at the dr's office.
me: why?
todd: because i'm [firstname] todd [lastname]
me: oh
todd: maybe that's what you should put on your blog.
me: wait, so what do you want the interview to be about
I mean, do you have anything interesting to say about ableism? would you want to talk about your experience with certain jerks at school?
todd: tell people that if they have a kid, and they decide to put the name they're calling him or her in the "middle name" position, they might be causing that kid a great deal of avoidable stress, anxiety, and discomfort in the years to follow.
actually maybe it's better for me not to talk about ableism.
