That columnist probably doesn't know what she/he is talking about (every case could be different though with the degree of disability and circumstances).
She works at an office that provides helps to disabled. She and many other like the idea that everyone can be friends, no-one needs to go to a special school, etc, etc. It's a nice idea, but IMO not realistic and not working. Kids have no mercy, this we all know. I don't want to have my sister fried by classmates. She's happy in her school, and that all there is. If it ain't broken - please don't try to fix it.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled... and frowned, repeatedly, in order to contribute to the ongoing research, which seeks to determine the number of muscles required to perform both actions and thereby prove or disprove the old aphorism.

I smiled because... I finished an enormous project that I thought would take another week! Hurrah!

Is that the Viadukt I hear calling me?
No, it's the Mrs - she found some jobs that need doing around the house now that you have so much extra spare time...

I take your fox in a small forest and I raise you a duck waiting for the Tram at Sihlpost.

Re: I smiled because...

... the dog scrambled up a steep woody hill, disappeared for a minute, only to meet me farther down the lane behind a loose fence, looking triumphant like she tricked me. Then she crawled under the fence almost catching the back of her leisure halter on it. She was lucky it wasn't an electric fence, I told her cheeky mug.

Re: I smiled because...

Two reasons :

1) Found an Alessi bread basket at the second-hand shop for 3 Francs!!
2) Found a lipstick which really suits me - yay!! (Not in the second-hand shop!!)


Big red smile
