West Chester Man Gets Eerie Look On Struble Trail in Downingtown.

Alright I swear I'm not making this up or exaggerating.

I was walking the Struble Trail in Downingtown a few days ago. It's a nice trail that borders the Brandywine River. Delightlful. It's about 80% shaded too. So if you want to keep your smooth, alibaster skin perfect it's the place for you.

So I see a couple approaching me. They're holding hands. I could tell as they got closer that they were in their teens. Once I'm about 20 feet from them I realize that the dude is an Indian and the girl is a.... Wait for ittttt...a mongoloid!

And this is where it turned weird. As she's passing me she gave me this look. A look of convidence. As if saying, "Yeah. I've got a boyfriend." I swear to God it was just weird! Or it was like how a vampire would look at you and he was saying to you, "This is OUR secret. Are we clear with this?" Usually when a retarded person looks at you it's obvious that they're retarded but she looked completely lucid. The whole thing was just odd.

And is it even legal for a normal to date a retarded person??

Or maybe she just LOOKED mongoloid like Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley (see picture below) but I swear she was retarded.

When mongoloid kids are raised like any other kid, they turn out to be the same in actions and behaviour.
So, good on her ! I bet she just wrote a blogpost on how you reacted .... :^)

PS FYI your word verifications are the best ! Every time I post a comment, it presents the funniest words .. ha !(hondequ = means dogs butt in our language)

Dominica - They turn out the same? Really. Hmmm.

I think mental deficiencies are like any other problem with bodies - some are all consuming and other issues can be managed. It's great that there is room for everybody out there! W.C.C.

not 100% the same maybe but I've seen a documentary about a family with 1 mongoloid child and they brought it up in the same way as their other 2 kids. The mongoloid was very musical and played it's own instrument. She was even joking around with the interviewer, Ivo Niehe. Will never forget that !

here's a funny thing. I instantly pictured Squiggy before I had scrolled down and seen that you had posted a photo of Squiggy. yeah.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - I'd like to check that out.

TC - Could you imagine if you looked like a mongoloid but weren't one? Imagine the jokes you could pull.

Lucky mongoloid lookalikes! *shakes fist*

So, I've never heard that term used to describe someone with Down Syndrome... but URBAN DICTIONARY tells me it's offensive. If Urban Dictionary says it's offensive, that probably means it's reserved for the underside of highway rest stop toilet seats. Is that where this blog is published from?

Andrea - You never heard of a mongoloid? Hmmm.
