Poor Grandpa. He's extra chatty today and I'm trying to buy car insurance online. I can barely do that with no distractions, much less the TV and chit chat. But I want to be with him - we both like that - so I just keep saying "Huh?" and "What?" and Grandpa keeps repeating everything. He's resting now - I think I wore him out.
He had plenty of energy to demand his dessert, though. When he finished his soup he said, "I think I'll have some white on brown." "Okay, just a minute," I said, as I - okay, at this point I was just waiting for a picture to load on Facebook. Grandpa allowed a minute to go by, then started banging his soup cup on his TV tray. "I'm coming, hang on!" I said, and he laughed.
After lunch he worked on a word search puzzle. "Okay, now I'm looking for 'pinch.'" "You need a pinch?" I said. "Yes. I mean NO!" Later: "I can't find 'howl'. I need 'howl' and 'pinch'."
"Are you asking me for help or just talking?"
"I'm howling for help."
I looked for a bit and pointed to the H in 'howl'. He circled the word then said, "Now 'pinch'."
I pinched him gently on the arm. "Hey! I didn't say pinch me!"
"You said 'pinch'!"
"Yeah, well you'd better watch out when I find it."
