FINAL STEPS



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.

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?"
