Okay, so I said I was only blogging about the trial, but this was too much fun to pass up. There was a thread on MSWorld.org about how people hate the stares that come from having to use a cane. Personally, I don't give a rat's arse what anyone thinks and if they stare that just means I must be interesting which is a sad statement on their OWN lives. HAHAHA
Anyhow, having used a cane quite a number of times in the past -- usually with every flare -- I have often thought I would like a nicer one than the utilitarian silver one that I've got. I'd never get rid of it, tho, because that cane was my father's and when I am using it and have my hand on the handle, it feels like we are holding hands again. Plus it's got his "I Voted!" sticker on it still from the last vote he cast. He never did find out who won because that was the year of the Hanging Chad. He died before the recount was finished.
But I digress. I have seen people with cool canes, but I can't for the life of me find any. Today I googled "stylish canes" and hit the jackpot. Apparently googling "cool canes" wasn't getting me the same results. You really have to have a diverse vocabulary to google stuff with any finesse.
I visited Fashionable Canes and hit the jackpot, finding Doctor House's (Hugh Laurie from the show House on FOX) cane with the flames on it. Woohoo!! Ever since I saw the episode where he found the Flame Cane in a head shop, I've wanted one. For $27.95 plus shipping, I just may get one, too!
I figure it this way: If we have to have these things as extensions of our being in order to totter through this life, why not make a statement?! The flames hit my funny bone so hard that cane just screams "me!". The only other thing I'd want to add is a wheelie bar. :-)
At least if I had that cane waiting in the wings to make its debut, it would make my next relapse (not that I plan on having one) something to look forward to.
