Beer is proof that G-d loves us

I belong to a Facebook dementia caregiver group where a controversy has been raging about whether to let a person with Alzheimer’s have a beer. It’s a controversy I can’t fathom. The person with Alzheimer’s is drifting away, maybe quickly, maybe slowly. My view is, why not?

I eat healthy, but if J with Alzheimer’s disease wants fried Oreos, why not? She wants ice cream? Go for it. She wants a beer? Have at it.

Indeed, at our old watering hole, I asked for a plastic cup to make it easier for J to enjoy her beer. The waitress, whose mother has early Alzheimer’s, delivered it in a styrofoam cup with a lid and straw. After all, it is the night before Independence Day.
