Like most chairs, it has plates that fold down for you to rest your feet on. The foot plates are much sought-after real estate between Cora and Louise. They both enjoy zooming around; one at a time, of course.
It has become part of our routine any time we leave the house. The girls get ready (read, "Amanda gets the girls ready"), the rallying cry, "Roll Out," is issued, and the girls race to me to see who gets to go for a ride.
On one recent occasion, Louise was riding with me on the short journey from the house to the van.
I said, "Louise, grab hold," and gathered my focus on smoothly navigating the ramp.
Louise grabbed the pocket on my sweatpants with her right hand, and I began driving down the ramp.
Halfway down the ramp, my hand on the controls twitched and the wheelchair lurched a little.
I responded by redoubling my effort to focus on driving safely and smoothly.
Louise got startled, and responded by deciding that she would quickly grab on with her left hand, and double her hold on me.
Unfortunately for me, Louise, in her haste, clutched on to one of my testicles.
