Good luck with that.
Today, my cousin Laura went over to visit–where my mom was trying to funnel a glass of Ensure down Gam’s throat under the guise of a strawberry milkshake.
Mom asked, “Do you like the strawberry?”
Gam nodded yes.
Then mom left the room.
As soon as the coast was clear, Gam handed the glass to Laura and said, “Quick! Take a few sips of this stuff for me so she’ll think I drank it!”
“Gam, you don’t like it?”
“I’ll never tell!”
Then she tried to get Laura to hide the cheese danish they gave her in her “bloomers.”
“Even on the rough days,” Laura told me, “she still has me cracking up.”
This is a valuable life lesson.
When life gives you Ensure . . . make your granddaughter drink it for you.
