thing you aren’t supposed to do in a wheelchair

It was our first time in the airport together.

Amanda and I had a little time to kill (since I wasn’t a terrorist this time) and we headed for coffee.

We always have a little tussle when it comes to paying for coffee.

My turn.  Her turn.  My turn.  Her turn.


We wheeled to the nearest Starbucks.

And the who-will-pay dance started.

She was past my last argument.

“Are you really going to fight with the handicap chick?”

I think it wore off in NC.

So I was going to have to come up with something new.

I leaned over.

I opened my mouth.

The sound the sound that came out was a cross between a woolly mammoth in labor and a really drunken Green Bay Packers fan.

Amanda snorted in surprise and laughed so hard she almost peed her pants.

The best part?

Was the people walking behind us that thought Amanda was just laughing at that poor girl in the wheelchair. That glared at her. And scowled. Who’s dirty looks made Amanda laugh harder.

For the record, I won.

    Hi Anissa!

    Unfortunately for me it was only after your stroke that I made it to your blog, at which time your huz was posting updates on your health. I then took a little blog hiatus (from reading and writing) and I never knew what happened…and oh my do I sound like a freak or what…basically what I’m trying to say is, I am so happy to see that you’ve recovered and I am thrilled to be able to read your new blog. and also, I’m really not a freak even if this comment says otherwise. Just a little rusty.

    I needed a laugh today. Only this worked. You’re horrible, in a perfectly awesome sort of way.

    Haha! Thinking about all those people giving your friend the stink-eye. You can feel superior knowing they are not in on the joke.

    You always win those fights. Always. I remember you trying to get out of your bed so I could lay down because I had a headache. LOL uhm you just woke up from a coma I think you get the bed… But NO. you had to argue. In response to Little Animation I am NOT wearing my Team Anissa shirt today, Wednesday is always the day Lokie and Mei get to wear theirs, and I don’t like to dress like them it confuses Lloyd. xo girl

    I love that who-will-pay dance. It’s a pretty big deal in my family ESPECIALLY when we go for Dim Sum. Why? Because Dim Sum is cheap!

    Thanks for the laugh Anissa – I’m wearing my Team Anissa t-shirt today =D
