Uber

 

 

I’m very excited.  I’m now aspiring to a second career, well, third, actually.  Wait, even fourth, third grade teacher, Teen therapist, writer, and now:  drum rool….Uber driver.  I can picture myself, driverless car, possibly a little red convertible, Dave in the front seat in harness, sitting tall, ears erect.   I’d be so conversational and cheerful, the way I was as a summer waitress at beach resorts like Nantucket Island.  Cconversational and cheerful cover bundles of missing skill sets, so touch your Uber app in a few months after Pittsburgh nails this down, of course, you know when the cars can change lanes by themselves.  Just tap Sally and Dave, red convertible, four minutes.

About Sally Hobart Alexander

Blinded at the age of twenty-six, I left California and elementary school teaching for life in Pittsburgh, Pa. There, I met my husband, got a Masters' degree in social work, had two kids, now 35 and 32, and became a writer. Surprisingly, the writing career led me full-circle to teaching, and I teach in Chatham University's M.F.A. program and lead two writing critique groups. Always, since the age of 26, I have traveled, not in the stereotypic darkness attributed to blindness, but a mist. My blog then, "traveling through the mist" will deal with issues in my culturally different life as a blind writer, teacher, speaker, and human being.
