I looked at this earlier. Do you know where I can get a copy of this text. I found the page on Google Books, but I could not view it.


It"s a short story by Mary Lavin. Hope this helps.

I can't find an entire text for this story, but it looks like the answer to this question (if you're reading from Selected Stories) is on Page 199.

She realizes that she's washing her husband's hair from her hands.
