The Hospice Lady and I were visiting and she was telling
me about how she liked to sew.
Now I don't remember what I said - and you know me -
but I must have mentioned Politics - and President Obama.
All at once I heard her say -
President Obama is such a nice - sweet person.
That got my attention so - not being shy : ] - I said
and how would you know that?
She said very calmly because I've met him 20 or 30 times.
I snapped to attention - sensing that I was on to something -
And just where did you meet him?
It was then that The Hospice Lady took me to a place I had
never been before. And this is what she talked about for the
next 45 minutes or so:
The Hopsice Lady told me that she and her husband both worked
in a restaurant in Chicago called Mitchell's. I think he was
a chef and she said that she was in management and did waitressing.
She went on to tell about President Obama - that he was
~a man that Believed Strongly In God
~a dedicated Family Man
~and as she first said - a Very Nice - Sweet - and Sincere Man.
And then she just rambled on - as I sat at attention - with Stars
in my eyes.
I saw my chance and didn't pass it up - and blurted out:
Tell me Everything and Name Names.
And she did.
Sometimes I would interrupt her with questions - and I could
tell that I had opened up a Window To Her Past that she obviously
enjoyed talking about.
And then - without warning - I knew that it was over. And in the
next few days - when she came in to check on my mom - and the rest
of us - we never mentioned it again.
But there are two things that stayed with me the most -
The Special Tone Of Her Voice When She Mentioned Professional
Football Players - and I took it as a Tone Of Respect.
And when she said Hillary Truly Loves Bill.
Now I already knew that since I had read once that Hillary said
that 'Bill is the only Person that can Really make me laugh.'
you got that right Hillary
