old and alone

me: mam, i need you to read to me those tiny inscriptions on the item. these are 3 to 4 digit numbers.
lady: im sorry i really cannot make out these writings.
me: (sigh) owkay, do you have someone who can help you read those numbers?
lady: well, i only have my dog but he's blind.
me: (dont know whether to feel sorry for her or laugh at her remark)

now thats an example why getting old alone seems a very scary thought. good thing filipinos are family oriented and you can stay with your parents at your "ancestral house" for a seemingly endless period of time.
