Top ten cool things that happen when you're 41 and dependent on a cane to walk:

  1. All sorts of people, even the ones who have been pissy to you for years, are suddenly very "nice."
  2. You get free stuff. You go to Starbucks and order a Latte and a rasberry bar. But the bar is too small so they feel they just have to give you a second one.
  3. Most cars stop for you when you approach the crosswalk. (Some cars speed up.)
  4. Lots of people take time out of their day to stop and watch you walk by.
  5. You get to use the blue parking places.
  6. Cheaper bus/train fare.
  7. The other people with canes smile at you.
  8. You see more details in the environment around you because you're going a lot slower.
  9. People go out of their way to open the door for you.
  10. I'm still working on number 10...

How about - you can trip mean people?

OK, not nice. I apologize.
