Today’s word is commensal. This word refers to people eating together at the same table. This made me think of accessibility. Being on the town of Andover disability commission, I hear lots about accessibility. However, sometimes I believe it should be just common sense. Some people need the extra floor space for a wheelchair (or a service dog!) That’s just a fact. I recently went to a movie theater that had “Accessible” seating which consisted of open space and a SINGLE chair. I needed to sit there so Denim would have the floor space to spread out. However, my daughter had to sit BEHIND us. Does this seating arrangement imply that a person in a wheelchair can only have one friend at a time?
