Me to Dr. S, a few months ago: "Dear, sometime we should talk about what your parents are going to do when they can't live in that giant house any more... which will be in a few years because of [assorted preventable health issues, history of CANCER!! (it was Stage I, ten year life expectancy is unaffected), and a neurodegenerative condition].
Dr. S, very huffy: "I don't see the point! They won't listen to me anyways and we'll just deal with it when we deal with it and it won't be your problem anyways." [Stomps off.[
Dr. S, this week, after visiting his parents: "Dear, we should talk about what my parents are going to do. My dad had a fall and eventually they won't be able to live in that big house any more."
(Readers, I RESISTED the urge to say I Told You So.)
