Summary Chapter 29

In chapter 29, Christopher thinks about jokes, metaphors and facial expressions  like raising the eyebrows or closing the mouth and breathing out of the nose. He can’t understand those things because they can have different meanings. Also he can’t understand metaphors like “I laughed my socks off” or “They had a skeleton in the cupboard.” He thinks that they are lies because people haven’t really got a skeleton in a cupboard. So these are some of his everyday problems because they mean that he often can’t understand “normal” people.
