Not How Sleeping Works As A Rule Of Thumb

| Related | November 5, 2013

(My dad has dementia. As such, dealing with him is a lot like dealing with a child. We’re trying to get him to go to sleep, and I’ve just convinced him to close his eyes.)

Me: “Alright, na-night.”

Dad: “Na-night.”

Me: *walking away* “Love you.”

Dad: “Love you, too.”

Me: *at the door* “Are those eyes closed? You sure you’re not peeking?”

Dad: “Nope, not peeking.”

Me: *gives thumbs up*

Dad: *eyes closed, gives thumbs up back*
