You may remember the McDonald’s commercials in the 1970s. “You deserve a break today. So, get up and get away to McDonalds.” Last Sunday morning, I got up, but I didn’t get away to McDonald’s. I ordered breakfast delivered through Door Dash.

For whatever reason, it took longer than usual. I felt sorry for Max, my dasher, a nice young man, who was waiting for my order at McDonald’s. At one point, I told him it might have been quicker if I’d ordered through the app instead of through Door Dash. But he said there were others ahead of him who had been waiting longer. On a Sunday morning, the establishment might not have had enough employees. Max finally arrived with my order. I should have given him a bigger tip but didn’t think of it at the time.

Bridging the great chasm which separates the disAbled from the non-disAbled


  1. Thank you, Patty, for sharing this. I’d love to hear what made you all smile this past week. Please feel free to share here.

  2. Hi, Abbie.
    I’m sorry it took me so long to get back with you.
    You’re welcome for the share. I love sharing your content. It always makes me smile.
    The thing which made me smile this week was when someone walked into the pottery room while I was holding my first ever sculpture. She said, “Oh that’s beautiful.”
    I laughed. “It’s a monster. It’s supposed to be ugly.”
    Really, in the end it’s not. But we only meet him in Laya’s dream in Book Two of The Blended Lives Chronicles.
    Thoughts of publishing another book also makes me smile.
