'Stupid badge,' he yells pointing at the Smiley Face on her lapel.
She picks up a spoon and brings it towards his mouth; he clenches his lips. 'Just a little,' she says encouragingly pushing the spoon into his mouth.
'Don't want it,' he says spraying pellets of meat, tomato and pasta over the front of her clean white overall.
'Eat up, then you can go and play with your friends,' she coaxes him, pointing at residents watching television and playing bridges.
'Hurrying me-you want to go home,' he complains.
'It's Open Day tomorrow and we've got goodies to wrap.'
The manageress rushes in, breathing heavily and announces, 'Joyce, this gentlemen's family are here to take him home.'
Rob stares at her alarmed, 'I won't want to go,' he insists.
'It seems you aren’t in the mood to do anything today,' she replies looking at her watch.
'No, I don't want to go,' he bargains.
'I have a gift for you,' Joyce passes him a small cute box no larger than a cake of soap, a present meant for her. 'Open it,' She spurs him.
He lifts the lid, peeps inside, His eyes gleams at hers then he smiles broadly. 'I guess this will keep me going,' she sighs.
Joyce wheels him away from his dining table, towards the elegant French doors and his daughter has already been waiting wearily on the other side.
Strolling back, humming “Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,” she thanks the Lord for helping her to incarnate His love and grace in serving Robert.
