Dementia dialogues

on March 7, 2016

I was writing these snippets on Facebook but, now that I’m having a break from Facebook (because I keep getting confused about what I have written where!) I’m just writing them here.

As I was trying to reposition Ants in his armchair the other day, this was our conversation:

Anthony: You’re such a great big thing aren’t you.

Me: What? How dare you!

Anthony: Well you are!

Me: That’s only because you’ve become a tiny little dandelion!

Anthony: Yes, but I have power.

Me: Oh you do, do you?

Anthony: You still love me.

Well, he does have a valid point!

    Though I love the title, “Dementia Dialogues”, Ants sounds more lucid than many healthy people I know. Maybe it’s because he has time to simply ruminate on life without needing to respond to every outside stimulus.

    A sweet talking man.

  7. Yes, he is powerful. And you are not ” a great big thing” although maybe in his heart…

    Jules you can make your blog post go to facebook automatically. Then those on Facebook can see it too. Easy peasy : )

    (I find I forget what I’ve said everywhere, let alone F/B. Have almost stopped commenting and/or replying these days as I keep making typos….with these old glasses. Hope they fix my new ones soon as the typos are getting embarrassing).
