Old People Do the Funniest Things

Don’t give me grief about this, cause I LIKE old people. I work with old people, I play bridge with old people, my sister is an old person – I’m their biggest fan. But they do and say funny things. For instance…

I mentioned that while we were in Virginia, Moon Pie projectile vomited across Tania-the-Mad’s living-room. I yelled for help and she brought me a trash can, some gloves and some bleach to clean up the mess. Then, for some strange reason, she gave me a large ice bucket lined with paper towels in case Moon was sick during the night. It looked something like this –

Moon did get sick, several more time. Finally around 7 a.m. I heard everyone stirring, and since it had been hours since my daughter had used the bucket, I threw the contents away. I rinsed it out with hot water, but because Tania was really low on dish-washing liquid, I filled it with a tiny bit of soapy water and left it in the sink. I figured Tania would get some bleach or more dish-washing liquid later. Then I went to eat breakfast with the rest of the family.

As we sat around talking a few minutes later, Tania realized that the breakfast dishes had been done. Granny had washed them in the BUCKET and put them away in her cabinets.  Delicious!

  1. Way to burst my humor bubble, Mom. I was planning a weekly, “Stuff Granny Says” post but I guess that’s out now.
