    You Know You're "A Person With A Disability" When

    You get on lists that produce emails like this:


    What Mom really wants...is a lift chair! Mother's Day is May 13th. Order a lift chair by April 30th so Mom is sitting pretty on her special day

    What a tender sentiment!

    Lol, too funny, Foolish Old!

    To this list I'd add -

    You know you're "a person with a disability" when...
    someone gives you a birthday present of a disabled parking badge holder, complete with embossed wheelchair symbol.

    You Know...

    You're a person with a disibility when your upper arms are larger in girth than your thighs.

    You're a person with a disability when women begin trusting you.

    You're a person with a disability when your personal fragrence is
    ode de urine.

    You're a person with a disibility when you personify, "Shit Happens."

    You're a person with a disibility when your van's adaptable hardware cost more than the original vehicle.

    You're a person with a disibility when you have more than two pocket doors in your home.

    You're a person with a disibility when for your next birthday you really want that lift chair from Spin Life.

    Oh, good gods! I think not. Although my mother was thrilled when her BIL gave her a walking cane with a sword in it.
