Due to popular demand... Tiny Talk Tuesday is back. :-) As I mentioned in my previous posts, I flew to Michigan last week to see my daughter & son-in-law graduate. I flew back into Oakland on Tuesday. Glenn brought his mom with him to the airport to pick me up. They sat in the cell phone waiting area. Margie was a little concerned because I would have so far to walk. :-)
Wednesday Glenn went to see his mom again. He usually quizzes her about what she's done, even when they just did things together.
G: Mom, do you remember what we did yesterday.
M: I remember we waited somewhere a really long time.
G: What did we do?
M: Went to the airport to pick up your wife.
G: Do you remember my wife's name.
M: (slight pause & laugh) Yes, Ann.
G: Do you remember who you were married to?
M: Your father.
She did remember the month & year, but still can't remember who the president is. She NEVER remembers that one! And since she's not seeing Emily every day she has forgotten her name, too.
And here's a good one. This has been going on for several weeks. A man moved into the home a little after Margie.
M: And they put him in the room with a woman!
A: I don't think they'd do that unless they're married.
M: They're not married.
I assured her that they must be married and that they wouldn't put a man in her room - which is what I think she was concerned about. The next week:
M: You know that man that moved in last week?
M: He's not a man -- he's a woman!
M: Yeah. He's weird. I mean she... he... it... whatever.
Later she had a conversation with Glenn and she told him that she thinks that this woman used to be a man but he went to prison and had a sex change. We haven't figured out if someone is telling her all this or if she's watching something on TV & transferring it onto people she knows. Maybe we shouldn't have let her watch 24 when she was staying with us!
