Pleasant (!!!) surprises

One of the odder gifts of M.S. Definitely falls into the "humor you can't write" category.

I was driving somewhere the other day, when I realized...

... I love these hand controls. No—I prefer these hand controls.

Yeah, I can't sip at water or tea while I'm driving—given the unpredictable, idiosyncratic, well-nigh-impossible-to-decipher behavior of my bladder, that's definitely a gift, right there— yeah, activating (briefly) the windsheild wiper is a little tricky, yeah I can't pat my wife affectionately while I'm driving, because both hands are 100% occupied with operating the "mission-critical" operations of the car, 100% of the time.

But, I gotta tell you... it's easier. More comfortable. And, dare I say, it might even be fun.

Life with M.S. is full of surprises. And those surprises are sometimes surprisingly enjoyable.

Now, that's funny.
