Subject: [Ohio-talk] White Cane Guy
Yesterday afternoon I walked to a shopping center/mall near my home in Kettering for some bed sheets. After making my purchase I decided to check for a DVD title at another store inside the mall called Second & Charles which is a used book, music and movie place.
I turned into the store and heard a woman’s voice and she said hello to me.
“Hi, Second & Charles” I asked raising my eyebrows to her for confirmation?
“Yes” she said, “You’ve got it.”
“Do you work here” I asked and she said no so I continued in the direction of the main customer service counter not breaking stride.
>From behind me the woman who’d greeted me was giving me the audible play-by-play less the crowd noise.
“Right, now left etc. and I turned to face her and smiled, mouthing the words “I’m okay thanks.” You gots to handle the public sometimes with kid gloves as y’all probably know.
I continued en route and from behind me this woman called to me, “I gotcha. My ex-husband is a white cane guy.”
I laughed aloud and without turning held my left arm up with a thumb’s up sign for her to hopefully see.
PC I can do without and all the euphamisms spoken to avoid saying blind… Well you know that old story. But this white cane guy label I can really get use to this. I like it! I can see it working for me…
“What’s your sign? You act like a Virgo.”
“Nope, nope. I’m a white cane guy.”
Single white cane guy seeking SWF must like dogs, fish frys, college football and Braille literacy…
“Oh there’s a white cane guy at our office. I know exactly what you’re talking about.”
Text message: LOL! BTW the WCG I met LVM for Friday BYOB.
