Mona:

I don’t want to get old, I want to stay young. And I’m getting older whether I want to or not. I had a mother, a dad and a brother. But they’ve all passed away. I’ve never been married. And I’ve never had any children. Everybody tells me I’m smart, but I’m not. I could have I suppose, I just fooled around too long. I’m too old now. It would have been nice to have a couple kids. I love little kids. About the ages of three, oh they’re so sweet… I don’t know. I’d like to move out of here and have a home of my own. You know, just be happy. Have a lot of company and all of that good stuff. That’s what I want for the future. Well at times it just flies. And other times it drags. I guess when I’m not feeling well. But the other morning, I got up early. Before eight. Around seven thirty. And it seems like the day was gone before I got turned around. I don’t want to get old. I don’t want to die, I just don’t want to get old. Yes I’ve thought about it and I don’t like the idea too well. I wonder what happens. That’s what I wonder, what’s going to happen after I’m gone. You know what I mean. Getting old ain’t fun.
