Thread: name for ur wheelchair?

  1. #11
    My current chair is called, "Oh, come on..." and my gimpy right hand, which regularly fails to/is unable to properly grab the rim, goes by the name, "Would you please..!"

    I'm getting measured for a new manual chair on my birthday in two weeks. (I really need my first power chair, but that will have to wait for our move back to the mainland where I can also get a van to transport me and the chair). I'm so eager to get this new chair that I already have its name picked out: "Woo Hoo!"

    my car is named Speedy..because it sounds like it has power...but it really does not.

    My chair has a lot of names...depending upon the mood I am in. Most of the time it is called Beast...because no matter how many times I bounce it off the concrete while transferring...it does not seem to be harmed.

    I never have really named my chairs, but I suppose if there is anything I have addressed specifically to the chair it would be the phrase "you've got to be kidding me!" Usually happens when I am hopelessly ensared in a vacumn cleaner cord, held captive by a cat toy on the floor, or when I think it will be capable of a smallish curb only to bounce back, but not over, the obstacle.

    My phrase is "Good Grief!!!" I never used that expression until SCI became part of our life.

    MY phrase has a few swear words in it. 'F...ing bastard' 'you sh..' etc.
