WHAT!

A hair cut today. Then time spent in an Ace Hardware, which seems very like Radio Shack. Or the coelacanth. I thought you were extinct?

Then rising in an elevator with two young brothers. The younger, maybe four, hopping up and down, while loudly asking his brother, pointing to me:

"Is he sitting ON a wheelchair?"

"Yes, that's a wheelchair. Be quiet."

"ON a wheelchair?" he asked again, incredulous. "Ow!"

Silence for a moment. Then more from the little guy.

"I'm gonna eat your FACE!"

"What did you say?" his brother asked sternly, embarrassed.

"WHAT!"

***

He was awesome.

Delicious Vietnamese food last night with friends. Warm weather.

It was well with my soul.

This made me laugh out loud; and I kind of wish you blogged on Wordpress because I do; and it's true about Ace and Radioshack. Makes you go, "Why?"

Paul,

I am interested in your autobiography. Is there any place that parts of it have been published? or on the blog? I wanted to recommend a great book to you (ad your readers). It's called Claiming Disability by Simi Linton. Have you heard of it? It's on google reader. I found it fabulous. There is also a piece I wrote on Feminism and Disability at delirioushem.blogspot.com

I'd be curious to know what you think. Best, Jen
