Is when, in your pimped wheelchair, one fine summer afternoon, you are enjoying the sun (covered up of course!, god forbid that you overdose on vitimin d!) at a local beauty spot, known as Pendennis Castle, a young lad of about 7 or 8 years of age, rolls up to you on his very shinny, new scooter and says.......
' don't your legs work?'
'not today' I replied, 'they are a bit sore'
'Well', he replied - 'how fast is you wheelchair?'
'I'm not sure, pretty fast if my hands work well'
'Great' was his immediate response - ' wanna race?, my scooters faster!'
How could I refuse.........so my carer and I and a young lad by the name of Adam spent the next 15 mins racing around Pendennis Castle carpark, much to the cheers and amusement of the other drivers in attendance.......... did he win?, yes, of course, but only cause my carer ran out if puff..........lol
His parents came up to me after and said they were so pleased we had engaged with him, he is autistic and does not usually talk to anyone, I thanked them because he made my day and most of all made me feel normal.........
Thank you Adam for making me laugh and I will beat you next time......
That my dearest lupie friends is the funny side of lupus. 😆
