On one of my recent visits the issue of the day was her bra. It was the kind with the underwire, something I myself find only slightly more comfortable than having a root canal. Apparently, even though Irene says she hates the food at the nursing home, she has somehow manage to gain about 30 pounds since living there, making said bra a little bit snug.
I helped her remove the offending undergarment to offer some relief. This of course led to issue #2.
"What will I wear when I go out to the TV room tomorrow? I can't wear that bra. It is too uncomfortable."
I changed the conversation - which somehow quickly switched back to "What will I wear when I go out to the TV room tomorrow? I can't wear that bra. It is too uncomfortable."
I am concerned that on my next visit I'll hear about how tight her underpants are. I'm not a big fan of going commando during the winter months.
