Hey all, I have two good stories for you. For Father's Day I took my dad to a chalk art festival. It was crowded, so I asked my dad to push me instead of me driving and inevitably knocking into someone. My dad liked to snap pictures of the cool art which meant leaving me chilling for a second. One time that he did this I was right next to the Spiderman chalk art and there was a person dressed as Spiderman. Sure enough, when he saw me he had to come over. For some reason (I don't understand why) he wanted to take a picture of us with his camera. Ah, to look like an 8-year-old boy in a wheelchair!
And today I had another encounter when I had my aide run into Starbucks for me to pick up my drink. I usually stay in the car since it takes a while to get in and out and I only want to get the tea and go. As I am waiting for my aide, I see the people in the next car looking at me and looking worried. They are talking but I can't hear them. But I know that they are saying- "Oh my god, kid in a hot car." For the record it was 75 degrees out and not hot in the car. When my aide came back, the woman called her over and said, "You know, it's really dangerous to leave a little kid in the car like that." My aide replied, "Oh, she's not a kid, she's 27 and she wants to be there." The two people looked immediately pretty embarrassed.
