Procrastination? No. Adventure!
Get those license plates really clean with help from Mother Nature. Saving money on your water bill. You're so frugal.
You still don't have your handicap placard, but at least you get some extra steps in. 10,000 a day!
You don't have a ramp, so just lift that 55 lb sucker with your brute strength and lower it to the ground.
Choose your comfiest carry, because you are going to be here until the puddles dry up. Next week.
Start the trek to the front door. This building isn't accessible. Fun!
All his words. Not mine. His superpower is observing everything and reporting with no filter. Lovely.
Twenty-seven people, and not one person helps.
Wait for seats to open up. "Lady, yous da shortest lady I ever saw." Observing and leaping buildings in a single bound. Thanks, son.
Don't forget the signs and hand motions.
This is a daily occurrence. A new strange obsession.
She wouldn't walk. She would run. Right out of the building and into the street. But not to our van. Because we are parked in the next county.
And a little boy who is pretending to be a frog up to the counter when your number is finally called.
You are now trying to erase the mental image of your child licking something that was touched by 62 people today. And hasn't been cleaned in forty years. The math is heartbreaking. Stop thinking about it.
While the middle child is yelling numbers at the very top of her small lungs. And eating her wheelchair straps.
And your money, which is all facing the correct way. And silently will the clerk to move faster. Because the one in the carrier is trying to poop. And she's not being quiet about it.
Just keep moving. You are so close to not punching that man who just called your daughter "that cripple"...you can do this.
And you let him eat the complimentary cookie, because his logic is pretty sound. But why does this place have cookies on a tray? Your hepatitis mom alarm is going off.
Feeling absolutely victorious. And start the long, wet walk back to your van. Don't even lust over those three empty handicap spots. Your placard will be here soon enough.
There is no way you are going back in there. You are praying it's on the internet somewhere.
