I'm staying with an older relative who needs a little help. When we go out, to community events or just to see the ocean, she sometimes rides in a wheelchair.
Like most people in her circle, she's no fan of Donald Trump. I don't inquire much; if this is more because he is a vulgarian than because he is a racist, I don't need to hear about it. I hear nothing about her feelings about Hillary either, but she knows which way she is voting. In a dangerous season, that has to do. Period.
Today I looked at the wheelchair and asked if she'd like some kind of sticker to make it more her own, more expressive of her individual tastes. She's that sort; she perked up. I was a little surprised by how political her answer turned out to be.
Then she thought a bit.
Now, objectively, this is nonsense. In her world, she is more likely to receive cheers than jeers for dissing the Donald. But there it is.
Of course, she decided she wanted such a sticker. I think she'll enjoy the response when we put it on.
