Trifecta: Week 104 ~ AT THE MERCY OF HIS COMPANION
AT THE MERCY OF HIS COMPANION
He had been at odds with his companion for some time now. After all, here she sits; eating his food, drinking his wine and watching his TV. Isn’t she the one hired to take care of him? Not being able to speak has hampered his ability to express his concern. When family visits, he tries to convey his dismay with his eyes, like they do in the movies, but to no avail. They just don’t get it. What’s worse, they think she is doing this wonderful job tending to his needs. The accident had left him in such sorry state. He guessed he should feel lucky, since without her he would die. Actually, death might be preferable to another episode of Jerry or Maury. He had forgotten about Judge Judy, but at 4 o’clock he will be reminded.
