Papa says an adding machine tape has gotten tangled up around his legs. He pulls it off his leg, but it's really his catheter tube, so he wets the bed. I tell him he's not in a tree, and I clean it up. He tells me all about it for an hour, and I to bed.

Then, he wakes me up, ringing the bell, to tell me I remembered his hallucination wrong. That really, it was a slide, coming down the side of a building, that he got stuck on. That I am losing my mind. I should be able to remember better.
