Superhuman?

I have never really thought of myself as a super anything.  I was jumping around on Facebook (not an Olympic event or even a strong skill) and came across a video that I was glued to.

Superhumans

I hope you can all watch this video.

It is about all the superhumans in the world (the disabled who do things that even many non-disabled people can’t or won’t do).  It isn’t a particularly long video, but if you pay attention it is quite impressive.

Now, I will go back to my first statement on here: I have never really thought of myself as a super anything.

Yet, when I look back on the last 6+ years, I see a person who “died”, who had a traumatic brain event strong enough to cripple him, and I see him now being normal in many ways.  Yes, I  have short-term memory problems.  Yes, I have balance problems.  And, yes, I have vision problems.  But, I am told and I am seeing that I am compensating very well for those.  I can’t work a full-time job because of balance issues and fatigue issues mainly, but I do several small jobs.  I also chauffeur my Mother 2 days a week, visit my Dad 5 days a week, and help Sis get prepared for her surgery.  I run my own household, do a heck of a job balancing the budget, and I work on my computer (play and fun) a lot.  I play “Words with Friends” on Facebook – 30+ games at a time and win just over 82%.  I play online poker (fake money) on Facebook (WSOP), have 2 accounts (PC and Tablet – not my fault) – with $76million and $7million respectively and I haven’t paid a cent!

I have a good social life and even date some.

All-in-all, I think I maybe am a bit superhuman.  Sounds good.  Now, just what to call me?  Superdude, Supernerd, Superscott…too many choices.

Have a super day.

Namaste,

Scott

Scott L Vannatter

A Hitch in My Get-A-Long   Rated PG13

Scott knew he should have told Karyne about the stroke and the balance problem, so she could; at least, tell him up front in an email that she did not want to see him, instead of making a scene in front of the entire dance joint where they had chosen to meet after the computer match up.

He decided to leave, turning around to make an exit out the back door so no one would notice, figuring he could tell her something tomorrow online where it was safe.

The petite blond hobbled up on the permanent crutches strapped to her arms and looked at him with a smirk.

“Don’t we make a pair?”

Scott leaned over and gave her a hug, thinking that not only was this a better night than he would have thought, but it also showed that honesty all around would be best from the start.

Didn’t happen, but I think more about that than I used to.
