Bongo listened to Ziggy Stardust on the way to work this morning. He reports that he is still heterosexual. Listening to it made him think romantic thoughts about his sweetie. The lyrics "I kiss you. You're beautiful. I want you to walk." reminded him of when his sweetie couldn't walk and neither he nor his sweetie knew whether she would ever walk again. This phase of their lives lasted more than a year and was a big deal at the time but by the time she was seventeen, it was only a memory.
Bongo wondered what their lives would be like if her knee hadn't recovered. He mused, "Perhaps she'd be teaching wheelchair aerobics instead of step aerobics." He went on, "In some ways it was a difficult time. We didn't have any outdoor sex. Then again, we didn't get any mosquito bites on our butts either."
