A conversation from the past. Almost a decade ago… Dad was well into chemo, fighting the losing battle against colon cancer.
Mom: We need to stop at the store. Dad needs more diapers.
daisyfae: The are undergarments, Mom. Please call them undergarments.
Mom: Well, he calls them his diapers… he doesn’t seem to mind.
daisyfae: i don’t care if he names them after jazz singers, or wants to write the days of the week on them with a marker. They are undergarments. We should refer to them as undergarments…
A losing battle. She never really understood my point. Perhaps not very important in the big picture. But it is always worthwhile to fight for the dignity of those you love.
