Boy: Gram, can we go? Shopping is bor-ring.

Gram: Hang on...

Boy: Hey, what are those purple footsteps?

Gram: I don't know, let's follow them.

Boy: This one says P-A-D. What's P-A-D ?

Gram: Mmm...

Boy: It stands for Peri...

Gram: Peripheral Arterial Disease. It says that it's clogged arteries in your legs.

Boy: Do you have P-A-D, Gram?

Gram: I don't know.

Boy: This one says P-A-D slows you down. You're pretty slow, Gram.

Gram: Thanks.

Boy: ...and people over 50 get it. You're even older than THAT!

Gram: Watch it!

Boy: You COULD have P-A-D.

Gram: You know, you're right. I'll ask my doctor about it. Now...can we GO?

Boy: Yeah!
