There's a business where a person can rent a grandparent. I read about it on the internet, so it must be true.

Now, I tell you THAT to tell you THIS:

My father lives with me. He's elderly, widowed, and has been diagnosed pre-Alzheimer's. The trifecta of reasons why I should cut him some slack.

On one particularly stressful day, I was worn out from dealing with him. My children and grandchildren COMBINED weren't as much trouble.

"Think I could sell him?" I joked with my lovely wife, after he had finally settled down.

"You could," she told me, with a playful tone to her voice, "but who would buy him?"
