Sticker

3 fire evacuations today. Three. So a bit of time outside in the rain.

Whilst outside, a sticker on the rear of a vehicle reads "Disable Kid with ATTITUDE". 'That's nice' I thought. On the other side a sticker "Disabled Princess On Board". At first, cringing. Second thought: 'What a strange juxtaposition of words'.

And then finally, I thought of a princess, stripped of her regal powers, thus becoming a Disabled Princess. A Princess stripped of her powers.

"Diana!" After the divorce, no HRH for her.

"Disabled Princess On Board". I bet if she saw that sticker in Paris, she would have thought twice about getting in. Even when pissed.
