Little People Are Funny

One of my best friends is a little person. She's about 3 feet tall. She'll tell you 3 feet 2 inches, but I think that's with shoes. We are close. I can tell her short people jokes and she can make jokes me in a wheelchair. No hard feelings, but we know when to quit.

Anyhow, she was visiting this weekend and complained about neck pain. I suggested she try a massage therapist. Massage has done wonders for me. She was asking lots of questions, what to wear, etc. Finally, she asked about price.

I told her that $60-$70 is typical for an hour, but definitely schedule a full hour because half an hour cost $45 or $50.

She said,  "It seems rather steep... I wonder if I could get 'half-price'".

I was shocked, because I wouldn't even have gone there!

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
