Although it’s Sunday I was at work today because we had a big group of young volunteers who’d come to help out with some painting. At lunchtime I was sitting with a group of them who I hadn’t met before and they were very interested in the gloves I wear to protect my hands and chest from my banging tic. This isn’t unusual – I’ve had lots of curious and complimentary comments from kids about my gloves. But it turned out that this group were intrigued because they thought the gloves had a squeaker inside them. I had to explain that it was me squeaking, not the gloves!
