Have you ever found yourself calling someone weird? I think we all have done this at times. Not weird like Halloween stuff, but as in behavior that is different from what we consider normal. Even the spelling of weird does not follow the usual spelling rules.

What then is normal? We tend to put other people in the little boxes of our own experiences. Anything out of those boxes we consider strange. But our boxes may not necessarily be other folks’ boxes.
