18. Following a REALLY bad motorcycle accident in 1981, I was in a full-leg cast and on crutches...

... for 7 months. The doctor took me out of the cast and said I could use a
cane. They gave me this dorky thick wooden old-dude hospital cane.
.
I went straight to a tobacco shop and bought a black-enameled pewter-headed
cane with 5 spring-loaded test tubes inside. I traveled a LOT by train in those
days and 4 of the tubes would have peppermint schnapps in them (the 5th would
have some herbal curative that I can't remember now).
.
They STILL go for as cheap as $20 at this website.

I made LOTS of friends during my train trips!!!
