In the Spirit of Medicine: did my grandfather vote?

The hamburger steak was tough and I had the dirty fork stuck in it and I was sawing on the steak with the butter knife. As I was sawing on it, the plate moved to the edge of the table and flipped over and landed on the floor.

The hamburger steak was tough and I had the dirty fork stuck in it and I was sawing on the steak with the butter knife.  As I was sawing on it, the plate moved to the edge of the table and flipped over and landed on the floor. 

The gravy was in the dirt between the broken tiles and peas and carrots were everywhere. The waitress was glaring at us as she wiped the floor and she brought a mop and slapped it down angrily. When she left there were streaks of soap on the floor and I looked at the bubbles popping. She didn’t bring me another meal and I knew enough to stay quiet. My grandparents and my brother ate in silence and I didn’t look at their food as they ate.

In the Spirit of Medicine features the essays of Dr. Arne Vainio, an enrolled member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe and a family practice doctor on the Fond Du Lac reservation in Cloquet. His essays on life, work, medicine, and spirit are published on Indianz.com and you can find the transcript of this story below.
