Had an interesting Karmic experience the other night. Heather and I went to one of my favorite bars on L.I. on Sunday night. It was there a few years ago, that someone posed a bunch of hypothetical questions to me and my friends. I only remembered 2 of them, and posed one of them to Heather on Sunday.
Let's say you are at a bar, and you see an attractive guy across the room, sitting at a table. You go over to him, sit down, and chat for hours. He is a great guy..everything you're looking for. He gets your number, and asks you out on a date, which you eagerly accept. You get up and go back to your friends, but see him leaving, and notice that he was paraplegic. Do you go on the date with him?
When I was first asked the question, I teetered. I guess I still do. On the one had, he is perfect in every other way, I'm certainly not perfect...but do I really want to date someone so physically needy? And, he may not have LIED in our first meeting, but he certainly didn't MENTION that he was paraplegic...which is a very important piece of information, I think. Should I be angry about that? Angry enought to not go out with the guy?
Anyway, Heather's answer was "No" she wouldn't date the guy. Her reasoning was compelling and made sense.
Later on that night, we were drinking and having a good time, (loud as usual), when two guys came over to our table, sat with us, and just began chatting.
A normal thing on any given night. Here's what was different...BOTH guys were PARAPLEGIC! In WHEELCHAIRS!
Ironic? YES! Karmic? UNDOUBTEDLY! Weird? NAH...I wouldn't expect anything less during a Heather/Stacia night out.
