I mentioned that I was getting older (happy birthday to me); Dorothy said, "But I want you to stay alive."
Dorothy likes to make "deals" that aren't really deals, as in, "Tomorrow I want you to sew this hole. Deal?"
She also refers to things that happened (or didn't) in "the olden days".
A few times this weekend, she has picked up her story with "As I was saying..."
I mentioned that her neighbor friends take music lessons, and she told me, "When I get older I do not want to go to school, I want to go to music."
