Good Heavens

A few interactions with my 98-year-old friend.

"I know exactly what is wrong with that man. (Donald Trump) I raised three boys and when they get that pouty lip you can't give into them. His momma needed to tell him, 'No!' more often."

After being told by her now prior doctor that she should pray for her medical condition, "Well what the hell good is that going to do? I’m sure he is busy with things other than my blood pressure."

Her biggest concern about potentially having to sell her home and move to assisted living? Not being able to feed the wild bunnies and the wild birds in the neighborhood and being forced to be pleasant to people she doesn't really like.

Discussing why she can’t hear on the phone, "My husband insisted on changing the phone to this new one (the 'new' one being a 1960’s model) and now I can’t hear anything."

After falling, not being able to stand up, scooting backward to her phone, pulling it down by the cord, calling 911, scooting back to her front door and listening to the debate by paramedics on the most spectacular way to break down the locked screen door, 
"Oh for heaven sakes!! The keys are in my pocket. Cut a hole in the bottom screen and I’ll throw them to you."
