A short play about empathy and autism

Joseph: My friend C has been really crabby lately.
Me: Why is that?
Joseph: I don't know. I remember that A acted like that for a little while last year after his horse died. *thoughtful pause* I wonder if C's horse died.
Me: Does C even have a horse?
Joseph: Well, not if it died he doesn't.
