I’m just a little bit curious to know why she’s here. She never comes out of her room. Is she perhaps autistic?” I pretended that I was curious because she wouldn’t leave her room. It was so ridiculous of me even to bring up the subject of autism. The doctor seemed to smirk, a mere patient discussing another patient’s symptoms, even using medical jargon. “She’s not autistic, she’s a megalomaniac. She seems okay, but then-she’ll suddenly surprise you by insisting that she’s flown an airplane to North Korea.” “Airplane? North Korea? By herself?” “Yes, she says she went there to meet high-ranking officials,” the doctor said.
