Peter (and btw the guy in the Asheville church called me Kifa, which is 
Aramaic for Peter) knew that Cornelius was a Roman. Being a Jew, he had a 
prejudice against Romans. (This Roman was God-fearing and knew not to serve 
pig-stuffed lobster. The animals in Peter's vision were not to be taken 
literally.) The woman at church doesn't know I'm an aspie, probably doesn't 
know what an aspie is; and hennaed nails and hair aren't typical of aspies. 
How do I explain what an aspie is, and what my appearance has to do with 
aspieness, to someone who doesn't know the first thing about aspies?

Sorry to hear that. When did it happen?
