My mother isn’t known as ‘mom’ around here. That’s my moniker now.
She’s been long promoted to grandmother status. So we call her G.G.
Or Grandma Gayle, if you want to get all technical about it.
That’s where I got all my grocery shopping skills. And weed-picking ability. And my eye for a plumb line.
Most unfortunately for me.
She plays the piano. Enjoys ballroom dancing.
Can whip up a multi-course meal and set the table with all the spoons and forks in the proper place.
And can take a can of paint, some WD-40 and a piece of sandpaper, and makeover an entire room in a single afternoon.
Keeps all her silver polished.
And has the metabolism of a freight train.
When she comes to town, she’s like a breath of fresh air. A much needed breath of fresh air.
She makes the kids think their antics (and newest knock knock jokes) are very, very funny.
She arrives bearing gifts.
She insists on buying lots and lots of flavors of ice cream.
And I suspect has made a secret pact with my kids to never tell them ‘no’. She’s willing to do whatever crazy craft or play whatever ridiculous game her grandkidlets might request.
Ooooh, and request they do.
I think I speak for all of us when I say
… detox stinks.
