the elderly

i have been thinking about old people a lot lately. on thursday, in class, we talked about euthanasia for 2 hours, ugh. not euthanasia of the elderly, mind you, but of animals. a tiny bit depressing. but in the midst, we talked about older people losing their pets. we did an exercise where we wrote down 5 things that were important to us: regan, family, nina, friends, school. then we were asked to get rid of one: school. then our neighbor was told to get rid of one for us, my neighbor took regan, ugh. anyway, point being: sometimes, the only one left in an older persons "5" is their pet. when they lose an animal, it may have been the only thing they have. depressing. then, today it was like old people's day out. THEN regan came home and told me extremely endearing and hilarious stories of the people he is working with at the nursing home. ohmygoodness, a women tried to grab regan's privates. hahahahaha. okay, old peeps. gotta love 'em,
