So I work in a nursing home as a speech therapist, and a large part of my day is talking to adorable little old men and ladies who are either quite demented or just unabashed to be old and crazy. I jot down some of the funny comments and stories they tell me and want to share them with the world.

Ms. Golden: It hurts me to know I'm like Van Winkle, who is it? Dan Van Winkle, you know, the one who was for so long. I never knew I'd be like this. I used to be so smart, too.

I can't hear loud.

My shoulder is so bad I can't walk.

I wonder when I started talking like I didn't know nothing.

Then I married Mr. Golden and we lived till he died.
