Taxed

April 10, 2017

It’s tax day this week.  People hate to pay taxes, but I would pay taxes if I was allowed to have an income.  I shouldn’t be penalized for having a disability.  The high cost of specialized medical equipment and my personal care isn’t my fault.  I’m a valuable member of society not a liability.  All that I ask is to be given good care and be allowed to pursue the American dream.

Yes, I can be an ass.

Some of my attendants think that I’m rude and I can be sometimes.  They expect me to be polite all of the time.  Yes, I can be an ass!  But if I were an ass, would I have two publishers and an agent?  The answer is no.  I tell people that my attendants are too busy to help me, but they are always on their cell phones or going to McDonald’s when it is supper.  I don’t ask for much, but when I ask for help I might have to wait fifteen minutes before they come.  They want their money.  Yes, I’m an ass, but I’m an author.
