A girl in my college class posted on fb that her son sensory overloaded today and had a horrible day, so she told him to be perkins and then took a picture of him scowling wearing ear defenders?

Perkins is a basketball player but I don't understand the rest.

Sensory overload is just getting overwhelmed with the sights and sounds around us, the rest of that is just gibberish to me. I have no idea what any of the rest of that means. What are ear defenders and who is Perkins?

 They closed a local Perkin's here to open up a Mellow Mushroom. It's so sad.

Made the noise and lights? I thought Perkins was a restaurant. Maybe he had some anxiety issues at dinner?

Perkins is a restaurant lol have you ever had such a stressful time in your life that you felt like you just could not deal with people or sounds and such. It's like that in a way.
