    I will be nice to the nurses who are nice to me. I will memorize exactly what time the shifts start and when they end. If I get a "nasty nurse" I will do "a fall" 20 minutes before her shift ends. I can also try complaining of "chest pain" 20 minutes before her shift ends.

    I will be the one that moved to Utuah and was humanely euthanized prior to being placed in a nursing home...

    When I'm in LTC and anyone speaks to me in a high pitched, condescending, talking to a toddler voice----they will get a dirty brief stuffed in their mouth.:trout:

    Just for funsies -- what do you think you'll be like when you're old?

    Will you be alert, oriented X3?

    Will you be crotchety and noncompliant?

    Will you be pleasantly confused?

    Or maybe demanding and critical?

    Confused and combative?

    What kind of Oldster do you see yourself becoming?

    I could see myself being pleasantly confused.

    Heck, I'm already halfway there.

    I expect that I'll be known as a lovable, old codger. Opinion about everything and convinced that everyone wants to hear it...

    Me too! Me too !!!

    And definately the one who's always into some sort of mischief, :innerconf ....breaking the rules at the NH, convincing others to have wheelchair races down the halls.... :chuckle

    Just let me have my propellor beanie and my laptop and I'll be happy as a clam. Won't give 'em no trouble at all !

    I'm gonna be one of those old dears who is a real know it all and tells the nursing staff about the good old days! I will be the one causing trouble and mayhem - all I can say is, the poor poor nursing facility!

    Wish there was an avatar with a grey haired old lady in a wheelchair racing around, cos that would be me! :innerconf

    i will definitely be crotchety and non-compliant.
    4 pt restraints w/scheduled haldol (intramuscular, of course)
    and i'll still defy the authorities.
    i'll be the kind you'd love to hate, but just can't.

    kinda like i am today.

    Mark me down as "Crotchety and non-compliant". I don't know where I inherited this bull-headed streak in me... but boy sometimes when I dig in my heels, I just don't budge.
