You know, I’ve always been a little weirded out by nursing homes. There’s just something gut wrenching about the concept of a repository for old people. Typically sad and/or confused old people just waiting to die. Tragic, really.
Now, of course, I understand that care requirements often necessitate residency in one of these repositories where sad, confused old people go to die, and that’s all good and fine. I guess I just wish it didn’t have to be that way.
Don’t get me wrong, though. I mean, I’ll definitely be shipping my folks off to one the first chance I get — whenever I can get them declared incompetent, or something (despite their claims to the contrary, I fully suspect my parents never check/read Frumpzilla, so I guess consider that “joke” a test).
I just hope by that time the entertainment packages have evolved beyond that of bingo and knitting classes. Something a bit more upbeat and fun loving, you know? Like, say, The Bay City Rollers performing their #1 hit single from 1975, “Saturday Night.” Oh, the humanity!
Thanks to T-Rex for the video…
