(The original convo took place on January 14, 2014. Thanks “Facebook memories” for this gem 😉)
A group from a nursing home was at the community center while I was there with Lady J & Bud. One woman was particularly drawn to the kids and wanted to play air hockey with them. After leaving the kids were wondering why she was playing with her hands and why she didn’t know the rules, among other behaviors. A conversation about getting older, more forgetful, and dementia ensued. This was the end of it:
Bud: Oh gee. I hope I don’t get de-men-ta
J: That’s ok if you do, buddy. You won’t remember anyway!
