Good Will toward Men

He groaned and moved forward, sliding the music stand toward me. Maria and I stopped playing and scooted the stand back a little. It was no use. Muttering and growling, he propelled his wheelchair forward like a lethargic bumper car and continued to scoot the stand toward me as I backed into the corner. Was I being attacked? By a wheelchair? At a nursing home, while playing Christmas carols?
hay emily i always read what you write .
nice to know the woman behind the writing.
nice picture if i may add.
Emily, this is soooo funny.
I gather you survived the attack. Sounds like a close one!
Yep gotta watch those oldies. They're murder in the supermarket with a shopping cart in their hands.
Wow, that sounds like an experience to keep in mind! Educate people.
Yes Sydney, the lesson here is men never change.
Uh-oh, I think I'm doomed to a life of solitude in that case, not that it is bad.
Someday you'll meet a guy with the right set of wheels.
I don't think that will be a factor...unless - wait! What models are we talking about?
Just kidding ; )
SWF seeks SWM for romance and Oprah viewing. Must be model. History of assault with wheelchair need not apply.
I meant models as in cars, not people models. The stereotype is that they (models the people) are dumb. I don't dig dumb, pretty guys. That's just me, though.
Lol, ok. Big dumb models need not apply. Applicant vehicle weighs heavily in decision.
Just to add to Eric's advert:
"Looks are important. Please send picture of car."
I'll be playing in a nursing home soon too! Wonder it it'll happen to me?
Take candles and a bottle of wine just in case.
I hope you don't really think that I'm that shallow! There was a reason why I stuck "just kidding" on the end of my car comment. It's all Jim's fault! He's the one who brought up cars in the first place.
Sorry Sydney, the "send picture" is a very old joke only told by us old fogies who live in nursing homes and like to attack visiting violinists with our walking frames.
Well, nice to finally meet you yesterday, Neil. A simple hello and a handshake will do next time.
Sydney, just curious, but what model would you go for? Something that comes with a Joshua Bell in the front seat?
Har har har, (more festive would be ho ho ho) well, as far as I'm concerned, I DON'T like American cars. I would much prefer a fancy European car. A sporty little convertible, that would be so cool!
Convertible yes, but not European. I see you in a classic muscle car like a '68 Camaro convertible. Maybe a Mustang or GTO of the same vintage. When you're 30. Before then you'll pass through a Honda phase with a big spoiler and underbody lights and a awesome subwoofer. Driven by a guy with wet-look hair and bangs. Probably baggy pants. In late middle age you might go European, maybe something like a BWM or SL convertible, if cars still exist. Maybe Porsches will come back into style too.
Were Porches out of style? Heck, I'd have a Porche NOW! Or a BMW, or Ferrari. No, I still don't want an American car. Currently, we are an all-Honda family. I wouldn't mind a Honda, though. I like the new Civics.
That's my vehicle of choice for the last 14 years. you'd be amazed at what they can do.
