You know those horrible white plastic chairs? They show up at various events. When I see them I just know I'm going to have to wedge myself into one and then when it's time to get up I have to push down on the arms to make sure I haul myself out before I end up walking away with the chair still attached to my ***!. Very embarrassing.

Well, yesterday I went to a Club meeting and there were the dreaded white plastic chairs. I went to the back of the room so no one would see me struggle to get into it.

Guess what? No struggle in, no struggle out. I fit, with room to spare.

Whoo hoo!

This is what being normal feels like to me. Moments like this when I don't have to worry if I will fit in a chair or if I will break a chair.

I could've cried I was so happy.

Seriously, those chairs are awful.

I'm so glad for you!!! Just remember, it doesn't give you free license to have them in your own backyard. They are still the devil in plastic!!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.
