Adventures at the Home - Elevators

As I walked into the nursing home where I do my cooking group the first thing I noticed was about 80% of the staff were dressed in a costume. That’s not a bad thing since it is Halloween. I signed in and went through all the formalities.

Heading towards the elevator I spotted a guy who had been coming to my cooking group the last few weeks. I greeted him and asked if he was coming to cooking group today. He replied, “I wouldn’t miss it!”

Together we headed towards the elevators and while doing so I noticed he was constantly looking to his left, then his right, then behind him. That’s a pattern I never seen him do before but I just shrugged it off.

We got on the elevator, the doors closed, and he just blurted out, “Might want to watch yourself today Ralph, people are really acting weird.”

After a moment I replied, “You do remember today is October 31, Halloween, don’t you?”

He looked at me, got a grin on his face, and said, “No #$%^ !! Well, that explains a lot.”

He seemed pretty relaxed during cooking group.

Oh, that poor man! What he must have been thinking! It is funny but kind of sad. And now I can't stop laughing.

Hey, I can relate. We were in a restaurant and a couple at the next table looked very strange. I took a minute for me to realize they were probably going to a Halloween party. At least I hope they were. Glad you were able to set the fellow straight or he might have worried himself to death.

Funny but not funny. Might be us some day. I guess he forgot.
Surely the home had tried to get the residents into the swing of things earlier.
