more offensive than anything Cindy wrote, not to mention superficial!
Christy

that's what makes me so clever...

>Again, you're ignoring the fact that a disadvantage is a synonym for
handicap, according to the dictionary.

Screw the dictionary; a disadvantage is not the same thing as a handicap.

>I happen to be 5'10" tall, which in many ways has been an advantage. Now,
if you were to expect me to drive a car I didn't fit
into, that would be a disadvantage. I would choose not to drive a car that
I had to scrunch up to fit into but what if someone forced me to drive a car
that way or forced me to sleep in a bed all night that was much too short to
lie down in order to get a certain college degree

and does that make you handicapped? No.

When I was in college I was forced to sleep in a bed that was very narrow.
And since I had to share it with a cute boy I was always falling the four
feet to the floor and landing in piles of beer cans. But did that stop me
from taking my required courses? No. :)

I'm still curious if there really was a person that we are talking about who
dropped out of a conducting class because they couldn't keep the beat with
their right hand?

Have a Nice Day!!
Wendy :)

Wendy, You may be using different words in your posts, but they are much
more offensive than anything Cindy wrote, not to mention superficial!
