     Sadly funny. Day before Thanksgiving a daughter and granddaughter came to visit, but talked "in front of" rather than "to" my client. After they left she said "I want to go back to bed." Once in bed, she said "I'm just going to lie here and expire." I put my hand on her shoulder and said "'Expire' means to breathe out. Make sure you 'Inspire' after that." She said "I don't feel very inspired."
