Not my fault

Most of what happens to us in life isn't to be blamed on anyone or anything; stuff happens. Accidents are accidents. Since the Alzheimer's victim is constantly losing skills and knowledge, he must always feel ... guilty.

Thursday we were getting ready for our day when I grabbed the brush to straighten up Bob's hair and found a blob of shampoo on top of his head. Thinking he'd forgotten to rinse, we headed to the kitchen sink where I saw that he'd put shampoo on but had forgotten to do anything else.

"Oh, you just forgot to wash your hair."
His response, "Sure, blame it on me."
