I ask my grandpa what it feels like to grow old. He 36 this question while we sit in his office overlooking the yard, where an empty bird feeder swings 37 from a tree branch. The yard has gone into a state of 38 in recent years. Grandpa no longer possesses the energy to maintain its 39 splendid glory.
After taking a sip of his black tea, he asks me a question. “Have you ever been in a hot 40 when the water ran cold?” I tell him I have. “That’s what 41 feels like,” he says. “At first the water is too warm, but you 42 the heat and begin enjoying it. When you’re young, you think it’s going to be this way 43 . But one day you realize the 44 begins to drop. You gradually feel the warmth leaving your body. The water is still pleasant, but you know it’ll soon become cold and there’s nothing you can do,” he 45 . “I knew a few people who decided to 46 the shower. I was able to stay in because I 47 myself recalling the showers of my youth. It’s too late now, and no matter how hard I try, I’ll never get the hot water 48 again.”
This is how my grandpa felt about growing old, but he has lived a good life to have 49 the birth of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
After dinner, I fetch a bag of birdseed, take it out to the 50 and pour the seed into the feeder. I go inside, 51 to tell Grandpa about what I’ve done, only to find he is sleeping. I think about waking him up 52 decide not to disturb his sleep, a sleep which will soon 53 forever. I hope he is 54 the dreams of his youth, remembering the 55 of days gone by, the days before the water ran cold.
