saturday october 24

today i visited my grandmother in the hospital (don't worry, loyal readers, these weren't our last words after all). when my brother and i arrived, the nurse asked my grandmother if we were her grandsons, and she answered "my great grandsons!" after a moment's pause, she was corrected, but to avoid the discomfort of confronting her fading memory, i interjected: "i think she was using 'great' as an adjective!!"
