I'm running as fast as I can. Sure, my back isn't as straight as it use to be and I have to run bent over, but, I finally got out of that place! Old folks everywhere. I ain't no old folk, I'm only 75. And I ain't gonna be stuck with a bunch of old folk that can't even remember who they are. Not only that they cheat at playing cards. I know they cheat! I got to where all I played was Solitaire because the old folks cheat! The only thing to look forward to in that place are the meals and even the meals are lousy. They taste like baby food. Bland as hell. It probably wouldn't have been so bad if my family would come visit me but they stopped coming to see me and I get awfully lonely. Come to think of it, I'm getting hungry. Even that old bland food is better than nothing. Guess I better go back so I don't miss my meal. Now I'm lost. Which way?
