“When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you’re a hacktivist. Which I would probably be if I was 20. Shuttin’ down MasterCard. But there’s no look to that lifestyle!

Mama Kitty has occupational therapy to help with her cognitive deficits. It’s doubly challenging for her—and all the other immigrant patients here— because she has to think in two languages. Mandarin and Taiwanese are naturally easier. It’s an extra challenge to then translate words into English.
She also responds more quickly if I speak Mandarin when conversing.
And it’s a blessing that some of her random complaints are spewed in Taiwanese.
Guess I won’t hit up Nordstrom’s in Columbia today. 3 people shot dead at the Columbia Mall.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?!
