It's alright. I don't think "are you artistic?" Comes up often in conversation in daily life. "Are you artistic?" "Why do you ask? Was it this sketch of an animated mount Vesuvius rampaging through a field of miniature hulks, drawn only with bodily fluids?" Although I guess one could just be asking their science project group "who's artistic" for the purpose of assigning poster making duty as well. Hmm.
Hey everyone! I'm the OP! Didn't think my post would be this popular! I don't have an accent- I'm from SoCal, but I was in a crowded class so it was hard to hear, so she just repeated what she thought I said. I've been talking to her for a while, but I asked her if she was artistic because we were really bored in a 3 hour class, so drawing would've been a fun distraction (although I can't draw to save my life). When I told the story to a couple friends, they thought I said 'autistic' instead or 'artistic' as well, so I guess she wasn't the only one. Also- I've done a lot of work helping children with autism. I've never say 'autistic' because i believe in ability before disability (ie. Saying, "A boy with autism" is better to say than "an autistic boy"). I explained what I meant to say and she laughed, so the FML isn't THAT bad. :)
