Grandmaisms, The Sequel

Friday, June 19, 2009

My grandmother is in town! Before posting tonight's entry, I read back through my first "Grandmaisms," the last post I wrote about the amazing matriarch of my little family - & I laughed hysterically, especially at the bagel comment, which is still my absolute favorite thing she's ever said. Fear not, though: She's only been in the District for a mere 28 hours & already she's provided me with quite a few comedic gems. Enjoy!

  • After I bumped into her while we were both putting our makeup on in the bathroom & apologized: "It's OK! My bum just wanted to say hello to your bum."

  • While walking through the Cleveland Park Metro station looking at the ground: "You always have to look where you're walking in case there might be some spit."

  • Stopping by my office before finally grabbing a very late lunch: "I like that time before I eat when I'm REALLY hungry. It makes me feel thin."

  • Sitting at a bus stop: "Are you sure this is a bus stop?"

  • Checking out the bus driver's neon orange & yellow WMATA vest: "I thought that was some jazzy African cloth, but it turned out just to be her bus driver attire. I almost asked her where she got it. I'm glad I didn't!"

  • After my observation that California Tortilla's new teriyaki burrito sounds absolutely foul: "Well, that's a bastard child if I ever saw one."
Not wanting her photo taken:

But payback's a bitch:

But let's get serious. I got some good genes!


  1. Hahahaha! This made me laugh out loud! Your gma and my gma would definitely get along!

  2. That's 86 kinds of adorable.

  3. I always, always check for spit on the sidewalks. Brilliant advice.

  4. Oy VAy! I need a face transplant!


Leave me some love.
