Babwa Wawa is calling…

Hi All —
I need to interview an autism parent, STAT!! What I need is for you to think about your worst episode, your saddest moment, go deep. I’m going to get all Barbara Walters on you…

And then email me with your phone number so we can talk; only do so if I can use your first name and state/(country if you are not from US) and quote you.

Do not rehearse, do not write down your response. I want this to be fresh and real, not writerly, not edited, not luminous, not heartfelt or poignant. Just Plain You, and Real. But I want to get you thinking, I want to take you back if you dare to go.

I will be back here (after the gym) and ready to talk at 1 p.m. EST. Hope to talk to one of you!!!

Thanks in advance. My readers totally rock!!



I would be happy to chat…but won’t publicly post a phone #..go to email’ll email # back…I’m intrigued..

Lately, if I don’t write down the meltdown right away then I tend to forget about it. I suppose I should feel lucky that I am so challenged. Darnit! Your specific writing needs never quite seem to fit with what I have to offer. I guess the ABA is working. -Tina G.

I read your blog everyday. I do not think that I have ever commented. I imagine you have done your interview by now but if not I have lots of stories. Most recent was a big public meltdown at Planet Hollywood in Orlando.My son is 9 years old and pretty big for his age. I am short so it was a mess. He was flat out on the floor and screaming you blockhead for quite some time. Shoes flew off etc. My e-mail is
