Thanks for the welcome backs, everyone
Adhoc- I think I understand what you mean about tinniness. Sometimes when I was on the verge of overload and my mother would come speak to me I felt like she was sort of buzzing her speech into my ear, if that makes any sense. It could be physically very uncomfortable, as though she were blowing straight into my ear. She has a habit of standing closer than I prefer when speaking to me.
Wal-Mart also causes me problems, I know what you mean
. It's kind of funny you mention it specifically because there's just something about Wal-Marts that makes me feel more overloaded and disassociated than most other retail locations (except perhaps other "warehouse" type stores like BJs or Sam's). The lighting makes me feel rather strange, I think.
About Kyle XY, yes, it's quite an enjoyable show. I can relate a bit to Kyle's cluelessness about the world around him, especially in the earlier episodes, haha.
