Little Old Ladies

I just love little old ladies. I can’t wait to be one myself. I’ve been thinking about my grandmother most of the day. She was a funny lady. She didn’t know she was funny, she just was. The stories she told me about me growing up where always delightful. The stories she told me about her life where quite intriguing. She always had a mouth on her too, one that never thought before she spoke. She was unfiltered, and canny.

As funny as she was, I really didn’t want to take her anywhere. Why? Because my grandmother had inherited the walking farts. Yes, have you heard of such a thing? Old people tend to talk about their bowels a lot, and my grandmother was notorious about it. But the bottom line was, I could not take her anywhere. She could not hold her gas, her flatulence. I learned this the hard way, once. Walking through the Sears store in a mall, I had to trail far behind, and pretend I didn’t know who she was, has she proceeded through the store, with the walking farts.

Another funny experience I had with my grandmother, was the time I made a boxed dinner, hamburger helper it was. We were both starved, and on our way to our second plates when I noticed we had eaten weevils. Weevils had gotten into the box of food, and I never noticed them cooking. Ugh! I remember running to tell my grandmother who had just swallowed down another bite. My grandmother looked at me, and without hesitation said, “well, they taste good!” Oh my!

I sure miss my grandmother today! What I wouldn’t give to be walking behind the old lady with the walking farts! What I wouldn’t give to share another weevil dinner with her, well maybe? Funny the things you miss about people. Out of all the stories she shared with me, she would be flipping over now, knowing I told you. I’m sure she might be laughing as well.

I hope some where you can relate some humor with this to someone else in your life. We all know, a good laugh is healthy. I need some more humor in my life! Take care, and encourage a smile today!
