“What? You can’t do that!” Lynn said. “You can’t let him drive.”
“Why not?” her younger brother, Jeff, asked.
“Why not? Are you serious?” Lynn said. “First, he’s 88 years old. Second, he’s been complaining about how his vision is getting fuzzy. Third, he’s on some sort of chemistry school cocktail of drugs to treat his myriad ailments. And fourth, his memory is failing.”
“Oh come on, sis,” Jeff said, “He’ll be fine. He’s just driving to the bingo game at church so that he can surround himself with old friends.”
“No way, Jeff,” Lyn insisted. “I will not be responsible for putting other drivers in harm’s way or putting pedestrians in jeopardy. I will not allow that! You need to drive him.”
