as we all know, kids say the darndest things! my most recent hilarious interaction was with a 4-yr old
Child: Miss Katie!! Look at your hand!!
Me: OH my goodness!! Where’d it go???
Child: I don’t know
2 hours later
Child: Miss Katie, you STILL don’t have your hand?
Me: Nope, still don’t have it
Child: *thinking deeply* well, where was the last place you remember seeing it?
and we lived happily ever after
i’ll try to be better at updating….. stay tuned :)
I went to give my co-teacher a marker today, at which point, the marker fell on the floor. I laughed, picked up the marker and said “three hands, one marker” My co-teacher couldn’t breathe she was laughing so hard.
I mean, it was at least 66.6% her fault for dropping it.
I have a friend on facebook with one leg, I just told her I wished I knew her IRL so we could’ve.gone out dressed as Peg Leg & Captain Hook!
Ladies and gentlemen of Tumblr, I would like to introduce you to Cece.
She is just so cute I couldn’t help but share her with you!!!
This is obviously not an amputee story, but whatever, she’s cuter than stub. (Don’t tell him I said that!)
i recently moved to Florida with my boyfriend. i’m being introduced to several of his friends and accompanying them on outings. i noticed his best friend, adam, got uncomfortable every time i would crack a joke about being physically disabled.
i prey on the weak.
while at dinner, i whipped out my Boston Red Sox hoodie. which is unacceptable because they’re all Tampa Bay fans. i explained to them that the hoodie was actually stolen from my friend jack (jack just so happens to be a double leg amputee with a sense of humor similar to mine). adam asked me how i stole it. i replied “well, jack has no legs…so i took it and ran… and he couldn’t catch me.”
adam laughed uncomfortably and said “Katie, that’s horrible!!”
“it’s ok!!! i have one hand. i can say that”
later, we went to a theme park and we were waiting in one of those awful zig-zagging lines. there were about 10 of us in the group, so adam often ended up on the other side of the dividing railing. adam held up his hand and said “high five, katie!!” while he was on my right side.
“adam. inconsiderate. i would love to give you a high-five, but i OBVIOUSLY don’t have a hand to do it with!!”
adam smiled, but still wasn’t unsure of whether laughter was appropriate.
a little later, i dropped something on the ground, adam picked it up and handed it to me. i thanked him and told him about my friend back home who used to tell me to “get hands” every time i dropped something. adam giggled.
finally, when adam was on my left side and held out his fist to give me “daps” i shifted everything i was holding in my right arm to my left and pounded adam’s fist with stub at which point he burst out laughing.
i often get asked this question when i say “look at stub!! he’s all red” or “give stub a belly rub, he likes that” or something of the sort.
“BECAUSE HE LOOKS LIKE A PENIS, DUH.”
