I have written before of my grandmother and her various issues (knee replacement, not bathing, living on her own, etc) but after her coming over, I really noticed something that I haven't really paid attention to before. She can't shut up and can't tolerate silence. When she is over, the TV is blaring and she is nonstop talking. If the TV isn't on, she demands that it be turned on, if we tell her that it isn't working correctly and we are not going to try and fix it that moment, she just talks, loudly. Is it her age of 87 that makes her so afraid of peace and quiet? If I am over her house, the TV is blaring and I mean blaring. During the day when I am alone, I don't have the TV on and I enjoy silence but sometimes when I am alone, I will have the TV on until I'm ok.
