Today I took my mama to the doctor. She sang a song while lying on the examining table about October. She learned it in the second grade. The doctor was so impressed, she had her sing it again to the nurse. It went something like this ........
October gave a party, the birds and bees were there, the leaves of every color came drifting through the air. That's all she remembered....it was, after all, from the second grade and she's 85 now.
The doctor patted mama's stomach and said you look like you're pregnant to which mama replied, you're not so little yourself! The floor would not close over me, it just wouldn't.
When the doctor started telling her what she wanted her to do, she stopped and asked mama if she was going to do those things and mama said no, probably not. I just hung my head, shaking it all the while. She then said, well, at least I'm honest. Yes mam, you sure are!
Got her home, went to the grocery store and now I'm home! Home, sweet home.
