Human: *listening to music and pacing around*
Alien: why are they doing that?
Human 2: oh, they have Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder. It’s kinda complicated, but basically they make up scenarios and things in their head and daydream them, usually to music?
Alien: odd. What else can you tell me about this “Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder?”
Human 2: well, they people with it usually pace around, make faces and say things based on what the characters in their head are doing, and they refer to it as both a blessing and a curse?
Alien: … This is… Highly unusual. How do humans get this?
Human 2: oh it starts out as a coping mechanism for trauma and then gets worse –
Alien: WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?!
Wait, normal people don’t do this? I’m serious.
