12 Days Dis Christmas


Please feel free to make suggestions for changes ... I'd like this to be fun and funny and accurate ... so I'm open to making changes:

12 Days Dis Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

an apartment I can poo in.

two grab bars

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

three wide aisles

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

Four auto doors

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

Five lovely ramps

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

Six pubs-a-kessible

Seven seating options

What I really wanted ... just one piece of legislation, with teeth, that made these things my rights, not someone's gifts.

So, essentially, you'd be happy if able people stopped pretending we don't exist. At least not like them?

They put up doorways - to let people through - but if the doorways aren't wide enough to include ALL people, then they are only letting able people through. Etc.

Mine to include is that the distance into something from any given place shouldn't be ten times longer for the person in a walker/chair because I get exhausted so easily I'm often trading dragging the walker up stairs vs. having to walk an extra mile to avoid the stairs.

May your Christmas tree have every single of these main things - and all the little ones you didn't have space for - under it.

The line about the lovely ramps made me think of a post earlier this year about a ramp (in California, I think) that was both visually appealing and a fun experience to use.....and I smiled because reading your posts and learning is one of the 'gifts' in my life....
