There's a lot of potential to inadvertently say something vulgar when wanting to draw attention to crutches (see what I mean!). The look of horror on my father's face after I asked him to 'grab my crutch, please' and his demure response that really, he'd rather not remains indelibly etched into the memory banks and has drawn pause for thought in care for my language around crutch-speak ever since! So not surprising this clip via Rolling Rains caught my eye, put together by the guys who do away with 'crutches' in favour of 'stix' - yay.
Here's a spunky bloke with a zeitgeist handle on grabbing a crutch in a distinctly feelgood manner for all concerned: participant and viewers.
It's a clever ploy for publicity by Canadian Side Stix - you could do a lot worse as ways to promote a product. As I have a 'crutch review' lurking in the drafts folder this seems an apt precursor/tantaliser - and a lot of fun to boot. (Confession: I have always been a sucker, and only moreso as I have become an extreme wobbly teeterer, for an adept hacky sacker, and there is no doubt this guy would be one of those.)
There's also a cute map on SideStix website showing where SideStix have been - wouldn't I love to add Australia.
Warning to wobbly teeterers: severe balance envy likely to be induced, but well worth it.
