I then get dressed, remembering to put deodorant on, and I'm just
about ready for my date. My hair is worn short expressly so I don't
have to comb it. Then I remember there may not be an accessible
bathroom where we're going that night, so, as insurance, I go back into
the bathroom and urinate before she arrives. By pulling my pants down
to my knees, placing the wheelchair in the same position as before, and
putting my legs over the opposite side of the toilet, I am able to
urinate without leaving my wheelchair.
Position I use for urination when at home
Finally, I'm all set; the telephone rings; it's my date; she got sick
and can't make it; I say, "That's all right," and hang up. "Do we have
a case of beer, Ma?"
