    I Pretended To Be An Amputee

    When I was a kid, I would take a belt and tie up my leg or arm and try to do things as an amputee.  I've always had a thing for, been fascinated by and attracted to people with differences.  Not sure why that is.  I was born around the time of thalidomide, maybe...

    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...

    I had a nice weekend away at a very remote

    and lonely cabin. I keep a pair of clunky aluminum crutches there for such an occasion, but this was the first time I have ever gone outside on one leg. Only on my left leg as the right side again ends at the knee in a thick stump. A stump that hangs down so neatly. Does...
