An Autism Valentine

During my brother in law's recent visit, he asked if my son would like a valentine from him.

My son is a young adult, soon to leave the teenaged years behind.

My husband laughed and said, "no, at (son)'s age, he should be getting a valentine from a girl."  And that was that.  (We were curious and asked if he gave his Mom a valentine, and he said no.)

I don't know if anyone has ever explained Valentine's Day to him.  But the way it is merchandised now, I can see where he gets confused.

After all, I play an online game called FarmVille.  For the past week, friends have been exchanging valentines with each other.   I wonder what my brother in law would think of that.
