Awkward Humor

My blog is titled “The View from My Chair” because sitting in a wheelchair sometimes gives one a different perspective.  I have been using a wheelchair my entire life, so that perspective is ingrained in me.  I’m also someone who has a weird sense of humor and when that humor gets filtered through my different perspective it becomes awkward humor.  Here’s an example.  Today I ran across the phrase non 12 step program.  Not being sure of what it referred to, I came up with my own definition: rehab for someone who needs a ramp.  Laughing out loud!  Okay, maybe you don’t get it, or maybe you don’t think it’s funny.  I certainly don’t think drug and alcohol addiction is funny.  I did some research on the phrase and discovered that it refers to medical rehab for addictions.  That makes sense even considering my  humorous definition.
