A young guy hopping around on crutches was just in, asking about prices on family photos. So I gave him a price list. He stuffed it in his back pocket and hopped over to the door.
I said, "Let me help you with the door. Crutches are hard to work with. I had to use a pair when I was in college. Sprung my ankle several times. Sure was hard getting to class on them. But the hardest thing was getting rid of the nickname I got. My friends called me 'Gimpy' for years!"
He laughed, "Mine call me 'Hops.'"
Laughing at the appropriate nickname he had, I said, "Happy Holidays, Hops."
He said, "Same to you, Gimpy."
And he hopped away.
