Thirtyish woman to 50-ish woman: so, are you excited to be leaving us?
50: no, not really, I will be taking care of my 92-year-old mother, who fell and broke her hip.
30: oh, I'm sorry to hear that.
50: yeah, it won't be any "fun in the sun" but it's what I have to do. It would be terrible if I was, say 25, and had to do this.
At this point I got off the elevator. I was thinking about my 16, 25, and 29 year old daughters. In light of what I have facing me, I have some things to think about.
