I love Mark’s sense of humor but sometimes it catches me off guard. We especially have to be careful when we are walking and he says something funny because my legs go limp and I almost fall down. Or when I’m eating or drinking and something funny slips out I almost choke. We really have to be careful but sometimes he just can’t help himself and it flies out of his mouth anyway.
Last night he was helping me get ready for bed and every time he thought he was done getting me ready I would ask for a tissue, then Chapstick and then a drink of water. He finally said, “I need to invent a caregiver’s tool belt. I would make sure it always held tissues, Chapstick, water, pills, a brush, glass cleaner for hug smudges and a flask of alcohol for me.”
