My big ass update about my trip to the Carroll Center is in progress. I wanted to write while I was there but it didn't work out. In a nutshell, the Carroll Center is awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone who has a sudden vision loss. Anyway, just wanted you to know I made it back, I had a great time, i learned a lot and details are on the way. In the mean time, here is an interesting and unrelated anecdote to keep you entertained until I finish my Carroll Center masterpiece.
So, I was at the Redhawks game a couple of nights ago and had to visit the pisser. Mom had to go too so we made the trip together. Mom, who is still recovering from her broken ankle is using a wheelchair to get around. So as happens on an alarmingly regularly basis, there was only one stall being occupied and it happened to be the handicap accessible stall. (seriously people, those aren't extra roomy for your personal comfort. Please leave them empty for people who need them if there are other stalls available. It's just the courteous thing to do. Anyway...) So, I peed while Mom waited. I finished before she got to go do her thing so I waited with her. Finally, the toilet flushes, the door swings open and out walks ... an ugly DUDE carrying a beer. He looked at us and said "Oh, I must be in the wrong place." Really? What was your first clue? The total lack of urinals or the big ass tampon machine on the wall? People are so self-absorbed and clueless these days. So, this guy gets the coveted AudreysAudities Dumbass of the Month Award for the month of June. Way to go, Dumbass!
