A lesson in thinking before you speak:
A few years back I was at a friends house, staying the night. His mother's a social worker
(or something similar) and often had some pretty weird
people round. The next morning there was some woman I didn't know sat in the lounge
, nothing unusual so I went downstairs to the kitchen
We sat round the table, read the 'papers, and chatted while his mother made toast
. She shouted upstairs that she was making breakfast
. No one came down for some time, which I thought was slightly odd
, then the door opened and the 'mystery' woman crawled
into the room on all fours
. Actually crawling, and drag
ging her legs behind her.
Naturally I was surprised at this
. So I disengaged my brain and said:
"Why don't you just get up and walk?"
"Because I have MS."
