A solicitor called me today. I wasn’t sure. If it was a recording. Or a real live person.  So I asked, ‘Is this a recording? Is this a recording? Is this a recording?’  Finally, she paused. To tell me it wasn’t a recording. ‘You sound like a robot,’ I replied. She reaffirmed. She was a real person. ‘You are reading mechanically from a script,’ I declared. ‘Please deviate from the script. Tell me. In your own words. What you want to tell me.’  She said we had a bad connection. And abruptly hung up. --Jim

One thing I do appreciate. There's good connections on the Alzheimer's message boards. Can we all agree on that? --Jim
