The Pull-Along

You must know by now that The Old Man do have an interesting way with vocabulary. Age, medical conditions... and their requisite drugs... do not perhaps help. As he do get tireder... his grasp of nouns do get vaguer.

So he is recounting a friend's puzzlement as The Old Man requests if the friend could come round with his "Pull-Along". Some moments of this talk continues until the light dawns.

"You mean the trailer?" say friend.
"Yes. That's it... TRAILER... that's it."

The Old Man bemoans his lack of brainpower and wonders if they can install one of these new "tiny brain" things to help.... and if so... would they poke it in his ear and it find its right place?
