Leaving Treadmarkz Across the Universe

It’s Not What You Got, It’s How You Use It.

For those of us with disabilities, it is easy to get down on ourselves for what we don’t have. Abilities, skills, functions. Whatever. If you have recently experienced this feeling of dejection, this observation recently made by my wife is for you.

We were thumbing through a book of “useless facts” when we stumbled upon something that turned out to be quite useful. “Leaches have 32 brains,” it read.

To which my wife blithely replied:

“How come they haven’t taken over the world yet?”


“It just goes to show its not the brains you have, its how you use them.”

and finally

“I mean they’ve got thirty two brains and all they’ve figured out how to do is suck.”

All this before I had mustered up the wit for a single observation of my own.

  1. Hi, I just wondered if it is possible to tell you about the new campaign – Vision 2020 – the charity I work with have launched. I can’t find anywhere to send you a message and hope this is an ok place to contact you.

  2. Great post! Clichéd, but it’s not what you’ve got, but how you use it. Check out my blog if you’re interested.

  3. I know, Carl. It was a cliched title but I just couldn’t wait to get this out and let the world in on how clever my wife is. At least I think so. Thanks for reading and I will check out your site, I promise. I’ll do it now!
