i cant stay away can i? im off of work today and they way one of my courses is, class is not being held today. we dont have any monday classes but we have reading and stuff to do online. ANYWAY, i want to tell you about a small family gathering i attended yesterday. my uncle is in town from kansas and my grandmother held a cookout for him saturday that i didnt attend because i had a prior engagement. my aunt cooked dinner for him and his wife and son yesterday so i went to see them then. a couple funny things happened and i thought i'd share in case you were having a case of the mondays. plus, it's my excuse not to start my day right away. 

1. during dinner, my phone rings inside my wristlet across the room. my mother asks,"who is that? [males name]?" i'm thinking how do i know but my uncle (the one whose house it is) says, "telePHONE not teleVISION". and then asks me if i know where he got that. turns out he got it from my grandma. she was working as a nurse and someone called the hospital threatening to "blow it up". when she called the police, they asked her if the man was white or black and that's what she told them. now with caller id, i cant say that to anyone but i thought it was funny. also, my mom needs to MIND HER BUSINESS. 

2. my aunt (the one whose house we were at) looked at my toes and asked me did i paint them myself and i say yes. the she says "guess what?" and i say "what?". she says "i dont like that color". i laughed and said "me neither". i really dont. doesnt look like it looked in the bottle. not a fan...

just so you know, my grandma said i was old. she was like "when is your birthday?" and i told her and she said "and you'll be 23???" and i said "yes". she said, "you are getting old!" she also told me not to cut my hair anymore "with all these women out here buying it and you wanna cut it". finally, she said, "what everybody else got? masters? you go get your Ph.D." all this said with her stunna shades on (inside and out on the deck). my g'ma is a TRIP.

Yeah, I don't think you're going to be able to stay away.

I'm off work today, but this was funny. Grandmas don't hold back, do they? That reminds me, I need to call my grandma.
