High Five

At Mike’s home, the people who took care of him taught him to do a ‘high five’.

HAND scaled

Michael liked to hold his other hand over his ear. Was he listening to something? Was it a habit?  I suppose that he felt most comfortable that way.  One of his housemates used to put his arm behind his own head, as if that was the most comfortable place for it.  The staff always told him to ‘look up’. I don’t know why exactly, unless it was bad for his posture or it was a behavior they were trying to modify.

The staff and most of the residents liked Michael.  They were always telling me that he was a nice guy.
