A recent conversation with Mom

Conversation with Mom:

Mom and I are going on Mom & Son date night. Dad’s attending his Alzheimer’s Support group for Men!

Me: May I take you out to dinner?
Mom: I guess we can, we have to eat!
Me: Can I buy you dinner?
Mom: No, I think we should both pay for our own!
Me: Okay!
Me: Do you want to go to Red Star?
Mom: Do they have good food?
(Please keep in mind, my parents eat there every day)
Me: They have the best food and the employees are really friendly!
Mom: That sounds good to me!
Me: Great!

I went out to the other room to get my shoes and returned to the room with Mom.

Me: Are you ready for dinner?
Mom: When?
Me: Now!
Mom: Okay! Who’s going?
Me: You and me! Is that oaky?
Mom; I guess we can have dinner together!
Me: Good!
Mom: where do you want to go?
Me: Do you want to go to Red Star?
Mom: What is Red Star?
Me: A little diner down the road!
Mom: Do they have good food?
Me: They have great food!
Mom: Where is it?
Me: Down the Road!
Mom: Okay!
Mom: Is Dad going? (Referring to my Dad)
Me: Yes, he will meet us there! (Dad is attending his group meeting and will not be joining us)
Mom: Can Rich go too? (Referring to me)
Me: Yes, he will meet us there!
Mom: Okay! Good!

    I love the conversations you post on your Blog. I can really “hear” the content by virtue of the way you relay them.
