74. Neurotypical can mean a lot of stuff,
but it's (in my opinion) the normal ability to process language info and social prompts, kinda the opposite of being on the autistic spectrum, but also kinda opposite of how the mainstream processes/interprets the barrage of information in everyday life.

I don't really care about labels. Dunno if you're plain atypical. Don't care. I just think you're hella cute, smart and kind.

:* So there.
