Triumph of the Disco Stick

HER: I'm very sorry that you have to use it, but your stick really is rather beautiful.
ME: Thank you. It is, isn't it. And I'm not sorry. With disability comes a whole new world of accessories most girls can only dream of.
EVERYONE IN THE ROOM: [Confused Looks]
HER: [Picks up the phone and calls emergency services.]

How fondly I remember our stick conversations and our sharing of stick-related research on the Ouch messageboard...

I'm not sure even the people who know me best would recognise me now without a stick.

"Who's that woman who looks a bit like Lady Bracknell's editor? It can't be her because there's no stick."

Ooh yes, sharing of research is most important among stick-wielding ladies.

There's that time my stick broke on Oxford Street and the only shop open at the time was Selfridges. I went in and asked customer services which department might furnish me with a replacement and, after much umming and aahing was told by the young embarrassed assistant...Gentleman's Accessories.
