I took my mother-in-law on a cruise soon after my husband died. She had been diagnosed with mild depression and had a mild case of Alzheimers. In the formal dining room, on Captain's night she seemed to have some emotional situation happening and dug into her purse for what I thought was going to be a tissue. Instead she pulled out a "mini pad" and began wiping her nose. The poor dear has since passed on, but all in my family still chuckle at this event.
