Celebrating Aunt Lil’s 90th Birthday recently, my cousin Nancy told everyone that Aunt Lil liked to keep tissues tucked in her watch. To prove her statement, Nancy raised Aunt Lil’s right hand to show the tissues neatly tucked in the watch. Aunt Lil presents with some dementia. About five minutes later Aunt Lil was digging under her wrist corsage which was on her left wrist apparently looking for tissues. Nancy kept saying “Aunt Lil, “the other wrist, the other wrist”, and was getting more frustrated as Aunt Lil kept looking under the corsage. Aunt Lil ignored her. Sure enough about 20 seconds later, Aunt Lil produced tissues from under the corsage.
The moral of this story….give some credit where credit is due. And credit is always due!!
