yesterday i was on my way into the waterman building and i saw a young woman struggling up a few small stairs on crutches.
"are you new to those things?"
"it shows, doesn't it?", she said.
i told her that as a kid i had spent a lot of time on crutches and i showed her how to hold them in one hand and use the handrail to make stairs easier.
"wow." she said. "thanks."
