And just what really is going on between Rachel, Helen, and Renee?
It seems that Rachel DuSan, 95, crocheted 62 slippers for those staying in the nearby convalescent home. Nice story right? So you'd think someone in the story would say something nice about it, right?
I mean, Rachel herself had something nice and sweet to say:
"It's nice to have them on your feet at night to keep them warm. And it gives me something to do."
Ah, very nice and sweet. My heart is beginning to warm...just as I had wanted.
Ah, and what does the 85 year old president of Rachel's AARP chapter have to say about Rachel's kind deed? I can feel my heart getting cozier as I begin to read her response...
"She's done her job," said Helen Jones, the 86-year-old past president of the chapter.
What the...? Done her job? She must beat you at checkers every Saturday, huh Helen? Sheesh!
Well, let's turn to the director of the Convalescent home, then. Surely, she must have some nice words for poor Rachel, right? Well...kinda...
"It's fascinating that people of that age can knit and crochet with their hands," said Renee Romeo, Crestview activity director.
Ouch. There must be more to this story. Could it be that Rachel is really a mean old buzzard of a woman and she's just doing this for some good PR and both Helen and Renee know better? There's just too much subtle disdain there.
I just may, or may not, look into this further.
