Participants in the live cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow discussed various subjects Wednesday, March 13th, 2019. I am co-host Zachary Fenell, here to provide some highlights via your weekly recap. Enjoy!
To get the conversation started I shared a video I found pretty cool.
The video features Katherine Beattie, the first woman to do a backflip in a wheelchair! Watch for yourself.
In response to the video, #CPChatNow regular Seth raised me another 360 degrees by linking to the world’s first double backflip in a wheelchair! Check that out too.
Both Katherine’s backflip and Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham’s double backflip remain impressive. Also looking to impress, long-time #CPChatNow regular Blemi turned to our community seeking ideas.
Blemi and her significant other want to dress up for a Comicon type event they plan to attend. So Blemi asked about matching costumes ideas which would allow her to incorporate her cane. I fired up Google, hoping to help. Yet searching “female characters that use canes” proved not fruitful.
However, Blemi noted the costume does not need to be for a female character. Doing a search for “costumes with gold canes” I finally came up with a suggestion, The Riddler for Blemi and Two-Face or another Batman villain for her significant other. The suggestion intrigued them!
Another item which seemed to intrigue Blemi included the different Girl Scout cookies we have in the United States of America. This came up when I asked people about their favorite Girl Scout cookie.
Ayden answered tagalongs. Meanwhile Blemi revealed in Canada they only get three choices: mint, chocolate, and vanilla. Therefore tagalongs and our other options appear rather exotic.
With said new perspective in mind, answer as the week’s extend-the-conversation question “What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?”
Answer below! Then remind yourself to join the conversation every Wednesday on Twitter, starting at 8pm ET.
Until then, remember. Do not blend in. Blend out!
