Dementia Dialogues 21

on October 21, 2016

Me: I’m a bit upset about these wrinkles on my cheeks that I’ve just noticed, Ants – see?

Anthony: Yes.

Me: What do you mean by ‘yes’? You’re supposed to say that you can’t see any wrinkles!

Anthony: But I can [and, OMG, he puts a finger into one of the many new little grooves of my left cheek!]

Me: I’m not happy about this, Ants, and, by the way, the only reason you don’t have wrinkles on your face is because the Parkinson’s Disease has made your face expressionless!

Anthony: That was not my intention.

Me: What? What!

Anthony: You look beautiful, Jules.

Me: Okay, but do I have wrinkles?

Anthony: Just the nice flavour.

I tried to laugh without further crinkling my face….

  3. I like this format. shame about the wrinkles but we do get them and you live in sunnier climes which has an affect. keep smiling as you cant stop time

    This is funny – sounds like Ants is just throwing out another one of his “lines.”
    Yeah, these signs of aging suck. I’m getting tired of plucking chin hairs!

    You know how to make those wrinkles disappear?
    Stop looking in the mirror!
    It works for me! 😀

    Wrinkles on your face just mean you’ve had a lifetime of laughter. Wrinkles on the backs of your arms, on the other hand, just mean you’re old.

  11. What a beautiful conversation!
