We went to a nursing home to visit today, and we met a blind, crippled, but hilarious old man. First, he told us about how he'd been in the navy during World War II. He was twenty-eight and newly married when he got shipped out. We commented that maybe his wife was sad about that. He said, "Maybe she was happy!"
Then, he started talking about his roommate, who was asleep and didn't even stir in spite of all the commotion we were making. Our new friend said, "He keeps his eyes closed even when he's awake! He never talks. I call him The Mummy."
