Her Vision Is Not Quite Rock-Solid

| Related | July 25, 2015

(My grandmother had pretty notable issues with her vision. I came to visit her in the hospital. Her room had a nice view of a river, and she was enjoying it.)

Grandmother: “Do you see the ducks in the river?”

(I look.)

Me: “I don’t see any ducks, Granny.”

Grandmother: “They’re on the river bank.”

(I look again.)

Me: “I don’t see them.”

Grandmother: “Oh, they’re asleep. They put their heads under their wings to sleep, you know.”

(At that point, I realize she was looking at the rocks on the river bank.)

Me: “Oh, I see them now!”
