Wednesday Thoughts

I'm too tired today to have a lot of thoughts. Well, I guess I have thoughts but I'm just too tired to put them together in an interesting way. So instead of making you read a lot of incoherent babble, I'll share with you a phone conversation I just had with my grandma.

Grandma: Are you going up north this weekend?
Me: Yes, I'm looking forward to it!
Grandma (picturing me on vacation without a man): You need to find a boyfriend.
Me: I know.
Grandma: I guess you're not very aggressive?
Me: Probably not enough.
Grandma: I wasn't either. But you're just so pretty!
Me: Well, thanks!
Grandma: Don't thank me. I can't do anything for you.
Me: (laughing)
Grandma: Your hair just looks so good like that (curly). I'm glad you're wearing it that way more. It looks more professional the other way, but more feminine, curly.
Me: Thanks. Some people seem to like it.
Grandma: Told you so.
.....
Me, changing the subject: So, how are you doing? You sound good!
Grandma: Oh, fair to middlin'.

Happy Wednesday.

This was awesome. Thanks for sharing it!!

Heather said...

p.s, the "don't thank me, I can't do anything for you" is the funniest thing ever

Heather said...

That is funny.
I have a brother.
I totally wouldn't suggest anyone date him...but he would be fun to travel with. What I am trying to say is...he likes ladies with curly hair and funny grandmas...........

I love that Grandma of ours!!! She's the best! She asked me how I was doing a few weeks ago, and I said "fair to middling" too, and she laughed and said she didn't think anyone said that anymore besides her! :) Ah, she's great!

Yeah! I love grandparents... wish I had some. But I sure am glad we had 2 live w/ us over the years. What a joy, and a hoot they are! Give her a squeeze for me, even if she doesn't know me! And I agree I'm still laughing over the don't thank me! I'm so glad you right about her, what a joy to read for generations to come.

I had 2 thoughts about your Wednesday thoughts: 1) Your grandma should write a personal ad for you and select the best guys. She seems to know her stuff! :) (Like that movie "Because I Said So") and 2) She reminds me of the feisty Grandma in the book I'm reading, "Queen of Babble"...they are both so blunt, with the best intentions! :)

Something I learned from a good friend of mine, is that you can say whatever you want about a person as long as you say "Bless her heart" afterwards. We had fun one summer with that one! Grandma just says what she thinks! Bless her heart.

Where North? I didn't know we were going north this weekend.

It seems your grandma must be talking to my grandma, and mom, and sisters because they all tell me I need to find a girlfriend.

An admirer from the distance. ;)

Is Grandma single? She sounds like a great catch!

Cute grandma=) "I guess you're not very aggressive?" Love it. I just think it's hilarious that she is so obsessed with your singleness. Thanks for sharing=)
