There are two stalls in the men’s room near the lobby of the Friendly Home. I was in one and this conversation, between an old and a much younger voice, was happening in the other.
“Whoever thought it would come to this?”
“It does for everybody, Pop.”
“You hit a lot of walls and you work through them but this one is a mountain!”
“There are upsides. You can stay up as late as you want. You can have ice cream whenever you want.”
