Good Rapport

“Well,” I said to Wanda, standing up at the end of our session, “I’ll see you next week, Love.”

“Okay, Honey,” she replied.

I laughed.

“What’s so funny?” she asked.

“I called you ‘Love’ and you called me ‘Honey.'”

She laughed.

I walked out of the room smiling.

  1. Sounds like a genuinely affectionate interaction, no indication of “elderspeak” at all 😉

    Thanks for sharing. Your blog inspires me every time. I am becoming more and more tempted to start writing…

    • You’re right, C, Wanda and I have known each other a long time and our endearments came as a natural outgrowth of our relationship. I’m glad my blog inspires you — your comments and those of others inspire me to keep blogging! I find writing about my work energizes it.
