    One Leg Pretending

    I use to just do it at home. Now, after realizing that I am not alone, I have begun pretending in public areas too. I fold and wrap up my right leg tightly so I look like a real amputee. Some people stare, most go about their business. I just feel like the "real" me doesn't need...

    Great Pretending

    As a little boy I was captivated by persons with a missing a limb or walking on crutches. I dreamed of a white long leg cast, but unfortunately I never needed one. When I had grown up I still had that strange desire of being an amputee and so I decided to buy a pair of forearm...
