Two CNAs in "clinical" training were at the assistance home today. One of the patients kept going after them, and then when they left, he turned his attention to one of the nurses. I blocked and distracted him as much as I could, getting him to show me his room.
If I get old, I hope I turn out better than some of these fellows, so uncouth to the ladies around them. The best would be to keep me at home. Children who ship away a parent need to realize that they may be throwing them to the unchained wolves of their own character.
I feel strange seeing Elena… I knew her a very short time… In one of our beginning talks, I told her in joke that I’d still be friends with her even when she moved on, or met others, or stopped talking to me, or something.
So fast, that time has already come… We passed without greeting today. You know something has died when it becomes a burden to talk to somebody who was hard to resist before.
