Every morning, after breakfast, a lot of the residents lined the hallway between the dinning room and the TV room to watch the race between Lucy and Sadina, two of the more energetic residents. It sort of kick started the day. The two women lined up, and the race was on. Everyone considered this ritual a fascinating display of sheer determination and enjoyed it immensely.
"There they go, George. Who do you think will win this time?"
"My money is on Lucy. She didn’t eat all that much this morning, and she’s put some tape on the handles of her walker. Guess that gives her a better grip."
"I don’t know, George. Sadina has her head down and really using her shoulders. Miss Prizy gave her a new walker yesterday. It’s one of them Mach I models with the red racing stripe on the cross-bar. It’ll take some doing to beat her with one of those."
The two women approached the entrance to the TV room. The cheering got louder, and everyone was waving them on. Just as Lucy pulled even with the water fountain, Sadina gave it all she had, passed her on the outside, and put her into the wall. The whole crowd erupted in applause.
"Told you, George. Them new walkers are smooth as silk. They have larger wheels than a normal walker. Better for cornering."
"Reminds me of NASCAR. Umm! Gets my blood going."
"I can see where that would appeal to you, George."
"Well, maybe tomorrow Lucy will get her." George motioned. "Lets go into the TV room. Get a seat before the crowd piles in."
