A New Experience
On Tuesday, I flew to Hawaii. I had a new experience. I decided to take advantage of my "
handicapped" post-op status and ask for wheelchair service. It wasn't because I didn't think I could walk between the terminals, but I was concerned about the timing. Since I can't walk at my usual pace, I didn't want to take the chance of missing a plane, especially since my last changeover was to a completely different airline and I had to go through security again.
It's a good thing I took advantage of the complimentary service.
But I have to say, it was difficult to accept the attention, knowing full well that I could have done the walking myself and should have done some of the walking myself. So each time I was delivered to a terminal, I still walked around, sometimes aimlessly, sometimes looking for a bathroom or some food.
The trip back to NY will be different. No chariot will await me then.
