    It's a typo for exceptional.

    Re: acceptional

    Sorry, for wrong spelling. I really mean exceptional as you suggest. However, I do not understand the meaning of the sentence.

    Re: acceptional

    Should it mean that it's normal for a child like me to stop interesting the surrounding for a moment when in the periods of total self-absorption.

    Re: acceptional

    I think people having a seizure are not necessarily self-absorbed, but they are certainly not taking in much of what's going around them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
