Well here I am in the Early Winter of my life and I still do stupid stuff. I don’t think it ever ends.
Like the other day I’m driving and my grandson’s in the car and my daughter gives me the directions to her work and there’s construction everywhere and I end up getting lost. No big. I’ve been lost before.
But I’m on this timeline because she’s got to get him out of my car and into hers and the doctors office where she goes has this thing where if you’re 15 minutes late you have to forfeit your appointment.
And she’s still 20 minutes away. So now it’s a half hour away from her appointment time and I’m on the phone with her and someone else is giving me directions over the phone. I’m actually going in the right direction but they tell me to turn around and go in the other direction and I do and then they tell me that – no! I have to go back in the other direction and that’s when I say, “I’M GOING TO KILL SOMEONE!” Because you see I forgot my little guy is in the back seat.
So before we get to his mother I’m able to calm down and have totally forgotten what I said until this little voice in the back seat says, “Gramma, why did you say you’re going to kill someone?”
Well now how do I explain that one without giving him an excuse to say the same thing when he’s all frustrated?!
I should know better. I’m gramma! I’m older and I should be a whole lot wiser.
