A Different Perspective

I was visiting my mom yesterday who lives in a residential Alzheimer’s care facility.

I had the following brief exchange with another resident, a small, short, hunched over elderly lady.

Resident: “You’re not from here are you?”

Me: “No mam I’m not”

Resident: “Where are you from?”

Me: “California”

Resident: “I’ve never heard of that place”

after a pause…

Resident: “I think you are from the Big Planet. You’re definitely from the Big Planet”

and she shuffled off
