It's not hard to be humble

I am certain that someone using a wheelchair is an arrogant jerk.

But for me using a chair provides experiences either painful or embarrassing or both, that serve to keep my self-esteem from going wild.

Maybe I fall when doing a simple transfer I have done hundreds of times. Perhaps it is having a co-worker pick me up off the floor of the bathroom.

Or maybe like this morning my f-ing bladder chooses not to behave. I thought I had just leaked a little, so I asked my sister to come in and change my wheelchair cushion. Only when she said: Is this water, did I notice my little leak was all over the damn floor.

Thanks a lot. Now I've got Mac Davis songs stuck in my head.
