I love cripples.

I taught my humor comprehension class today.

The sickest jokes came from the middle-aged wheelchair-bound woman who ate food out of a tube.

I drove home wondering why this experience was such a surprise to me.

The disabled people I know behave so much more politely than the average typically-abled person, that I assume disabled people can't act impolite on command. I don't associate politeness or impoliteness with a choice.

I'm crippled on the inside.

Love,
