What do you call it when the Afflicted One can, and does, do things like
describe the Confederate battle flag he sees on someone's car in heraldese?
"Gules, on a saltire azure fimbriated argent, thirteen mullets argent."
Or finds himself blazoning street signs? "Or, a spear per pale---that means
I go straight."
Or spends his time waiting to get into the "Medieval Times" restaurant
criticizing the heraldry in the decorative shields they have up.
Or wishes that more website designers at least knew of the existence of the
heraldic rules of tincture, if only to save himself eyestrain?
All of which I have done.
