Mom calmly told me a man at her retirement apartment building killed his wife. “I heard some men talking about it.”

She said the couple lived by her friend Jo. He would do the laundry. “She was deaf and we would go by her and wave.”

We should also stay away from the guy with the mustache. “He killed his wife.”

Mom’s not afraid though. Maybe the thought of death is appealing at 82.

I was telling a friend that I tried to explain to Mom that she must have heard wrong because otherwise the husband would be in jail. “You’re wasting your time. Your mother can’t understand what you’re telling her.”

Yea, I guess she’s right. At least Mom has something to talk about.
