Today I decided to do three sets of pushups after going for a 30-minute walk in the neighborhood with a friend. My dad was at home all by himself and I was a bit anxious. Right before leaving, I told my dad where I was going and to watch the house until I get back. I thought he was asleep as I was heading back, but as soon as my friend and I stepped through the door he had his eyes wide open looking at us. He even crossed his legs and seemed to be alert. I had music playing in the background with the TV screen showing a slideshow of family photos.
