Every now and then we all come across someone or something that inspires us. One of the things that always amazes me is the way that Brian Cousineau is able to go through life under very challenging circumstances with such dignity. For those of you who don't know Brian or those who just haven't seen him since high school he is an incredible guy. Despite being confined to a wheel chair and having several serious medical issues he is able to always maintain a positive attitude and seems to enjoy life. I don't think that I could handle his situation with a tenth of the class that he does. In high school I remember Brian being a very energetic, athletic, wise ass boy. He played all of the sports and was always into something. He wasn't the type of kid to loaf around the house and read a book. A lot of kids today are content to stay home and play on the computer or just text their friends. I think that Brian would have gone nuts if those were his options while growing up. Shortly after high school doctors found some type of growth on his spinal cord. I'm not exactly sure the terminology for it or what type of surgery they did but I do know that after the surgery he was confined to a electric wheel chair. (paralzed from waist down) If he was a nerdy kid who was a book worm I think it would have been easier for him to adjust but he was a kid who had ants in his pants and couldn't sit still. How was he going to cope with this? I was away in college when I first heard about his situation. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Oh my god what? I saw him about a year later for the first time. He looked the same but now he was in a chair. I was amazed that he didn't seem pissed. He accepted his situation, but had faith that he would one day be out of the chair. That was 27 years ago. I don't know what he thinks now or how he manages to have such a positive outlook on life, but he does, and that's all that really matters. Anyone who feels depressed should spend a few days in his shoes and I'm sure that they would have a whole different outlook on life. He's a very inspirational figure and has a stable of women that he pimps out to pay for his medical bills. I remember when he called me and said that one of his bit%$es kept coming up short. I explained that his legs might not work but that his pimp hand was still strong. He told me that the problem was that she was to tall for the pimp hand. I knew that we had a solvable problem. I started calling around to find out who could build him a monster chair or put some hydrolics on his. We developed a prototype but he kept falling out of the thing when he was chasing his girls around trying to collect his money. I knew that we had to come up with another solution, something that nobody else had thought of yet. That's when I had one of my best ideas ever........Midget Hoes. He's been strong in the game ever since. Sure they try and outrun him, bo legs and all. It's a sight to see him chasing them around in that souped up chair. They've got no chance of getting away unless the chair runs out of juice. Even then he has this tiny little lasso that he can throw 20 feet and wrap around a carrot. To see him lasso one of them is a special treat. We hooked up a power winch to his chair so that when he gets them he just reels them in. Damn this stuff is good. Where was I? Oh yeah, Brian, The chair, midget hoes. I don't know what's wrong with me. I started writing about a guy who I really admire and then my mind started to wonder and before you know it I've slandered my buddy. Someone call my attorneys. I feel a pending lawsuit coming on. The reason that I chose now to write about Brian is because his party/fundraiser is coming up Saturday 10/24/15. (Date changed was last yr date) Its's a great time and it's for a great cause. I've been going for over 20 years and it gets better every year. His medical costs are very expensive and this event goes a long way to paying for his care. I don't think that there is a set price. You just donate whatever you want. There is great food and plenty of drink. You'll see lots of people that you probably haven't seen in years. If you don't know Brian you can still come. He'll be the guy in the chair with the lasso. I look forward to it every year. It's at the David Posnack, Jewish Community Center in Davie,
Come one come all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
