In Chapter Three, Christopher describes how, when he met Siobhan eight years ago, she showed him a picture of a sad face. He describes how he understood the picture to mean sad and so told her to draw several faces so that when people spoke to him and he couldn't detect their mood, he could refer to his drawings for help. Siobhan laughs at him, and draws a picture of a puzzled face, telling him that he would make people feel weird if he did that. So he stops and says that if he doesn't know how to read people's moods in the future, he will simply ask them or walk away.
