Transfer-Wk 17,Wed.-Too busy to talk



I haven't posted for a while have I? I've been "Too busy to talk" ... get it? I stutter .. and I've been busy. ;-) Weak sense of humour eh?

The little girl above is the big reason why. She was born on Friday, wieghing in at 7lbs 10ozs. Hopefully she won't stutter. She's very cool. :D

I haven't practiced my speech therapy in about a week. However, I did manage to go 3-4 days of hanging out at a hospital without a single person asking me if I was having a stroke ... so that's a big improvement. ;-)


Not meant as advice, please find a qualified therapist if you are interested in similar therapy.

Off the subject a bit here...watched a rare TV program Sunday night, it was some crime investigator show(forget the name). Anyway, it began with the detective being held at gunpoint by a seriel killer. The said seriel killer happened to stutter severely and the actor fit the role by bearing an uncanny resemblance to Charles Manson.

The detective got the gun away from said stuttering psycho by mocking his speech.

Wasn't really personally offended by this, but having a TV psycho being a stutterer definitely does portray PWS in a negative light. Seems to be safe boundaries in a society where people walk on eggshells to avoid offending some group.

Now brain dead TV drones who seen that show may think of that guy above next time that they encounter a PWS

"The detective got the gun away from said stuttering psycho by mocking his speech."

Yeah, that's nice isn't it?

Do the writers & thier audience get a kick out of pointing others weaknesses in an effort to benefit from the percieved contrast? Do they feel better about themselves when seeing somebody they percieve as inferior?

I think so.

And I think that's the weakness.

But you know, personally, I'm really not too offended by stuff like this.
