A story which I think you’ll appreciate is this:
I called mom in hospice on Sunday to chat and remind her that her favorite show Meet the Press was on.
“Ask for a nurse to help you set up your TV so you can watch it,” I suggested.
Later that afternoon, mom called and told me that when she asked the nurse to put on Meet the Press, the nurse (although I think it was really a volunteer or aide) told her that she didn’t want to watch the news, wouldn’t she prefer watching cartoons?
My mother said “No, I want to watch Meet the Press.”
“Are you sure? No cartoons?” the aide again asked her.
My mother replied, “Listen, I’m not dead yet and I still know what I like. I want to watch Meet the Press.”
She got to watch Meet the Press.
And people wonder where I get it from.
