Dec 8: I visit the senior center today. My grandma is there. My grandpa, too. Thing is, they both have Alzheimer's disease, so you can imagine how it is. Some days I can get both of them to sit with me and we can have a common topic of conversation: the TV, the weather, what they ate for breakfast, how they feel, the nurses. Sometimes my grandma has this face where she looks about to cry, it comes suddenly, mostly when that milk commercial is on. "I wish my husband was here," she'd say. I hold her hand. Kiss it.
