What Would my Wife Say?

Some humor today, because we can’t take life too seriously all the time!  It was a beautiful, quiet afternoon at a LTC facility.  Everything was going smoothly without many issues that day and I was focused.

While reading through some progress notes for a particular resident, I couldn’t help but have that feeling that someone was slowly approaching me from behind and to the left.  Not knowing what was going to happen, I slowly leaned back and to the right.  There was a 90+ year old resident with her lips puckered asking, “Well aren’t you going to kiss me?”

I remember stammering a little bit, looking for the right words.  I threw out this softball for her, “Ah, what would my wife say?”  To which her response was, “We don’t have to tell her”. – Well played.

You truly never know what is going to happen at a long term care facility.
