Nursing Home Conversation

Momma(95): Can you look in that drawer and get me a tube of lipstick? I need a new one.

Daughter(60 something): Looks puzzled, then brightens- You mean chapstick?

Momma: nods, grunts

Daughter: Here it is…

Momma: That’s not what I need!

Daughter: But you just said…

Momma: Toothpaste… I meant tube of toothpaste… Starts laughing

Daughter: Belly laugh …At least we kept it all in the mouth…

    Sometimes the right word just doesn’t come and age has nothing to do with it.

    Thanks for the laugh– lipstick, chapstick, toothpaste. Hahaha! I wrote a post several years ago about a nursing home conversation… you might enjoy it: https://alicenine.net/lunar-lunacy/ Blessings!

  3. this is wonderful. I’m glad your mother still has her wits to laugh. And her brain was close, it was all mouth related.
