Audrey: Here I can do what I want. I’m not bossed around. Spencer will take me out and wheel me around and I don’t have a boring chair. Spen drops in every other thing. Oh, my hand is fast asleep, so I switched hands. A girl came in and made my neighbor Vivian’s bed. Vivian walks with a walker. She is in and out all the time. She is always on the go.
Yesterday a hundred million black birds were flying up and down outside my window. The road was covered with birds. They stayed there even after I left. The phone fell on the floor. I’m going to put it back. I backed up so far the phone fell off the table. Oh, Dawn is coming in!! Who am I talking to?
A: Oh, I’m not getting that bad yet? Wasn’t that funny. I get along pretty good with whom I talk with.
(Heather: Of course, you do, Mother. It’s just that you are excited and happy to see Dawn. And besides, if you forget whom you are talking to, just say, “Whom am I talking to?” And then you will get the answer and we keep going with the conversation. No one will be upset if you forget for a moment. We all forget at times. That is natural. Let me say Hi to Dawn and then I’ll call you next Saturday. Love you.)
