“I poopied! I poopied!”
The nurse aide, Katie, took a sniff and frowned.
“Mr Aluc, I swear you do this on purpose,just when I’m about to clock off.Come on, let’s get you cleaned up.”

“You need to eat.You’re withering away, Mr Aluc”
His mouth opened as he moved toward that beguiling throat.
For the life of him, he couldn’t remember what to do next.
