The detail that Granny Weatherall has become disoriented is when she says "I won't see that boy again, he just left five minutes ago...It's night now, heres the nurse" (610). Granny's perception of time has become confusing and she mixes past and present. The doctor has been there in the morning, he returned later at night, and Granny had felt that it had only been five minutes. Another example of time becoming a rather distorted principle to her is the rather interesting account with Hapsy. Sometimes Granny is Hapsy, sometimes she sees memories of Hapsy, and sometimes Hapsy is there, right beside her.
