But...not tonight, Honey!
We went to Grandma's 80th birthday party. It was fun. We had lots of family and lots of food...the best part was the Steelhead. My Mother-in-Law caught it, my Father-in-law prepared and cooked it...and I ate it...ah, now that is the way things should be! (after all, I took one of their daughters off their hands...not only that, I was first, so I have seniority over the others!)
There were a few things said that you don't expect to hear at an 80th birthday party. My favorite was where Grandma asked her great-grandson to show us is nipples...
"Show us your nipples!"
"Did she say what I think she did?"
"What did she say?"
"Why did Grandma use the word nipples?"
"Did someone hire a stripper?"
"Crap, I don't have any dollar bills!"
"Aunt Karen, why are you pulling money out of your purse? She was talking about nipple-rings!"
"Uncle Dennis, put your wallet away!"
Looks of surprise and consternation...then it dawns on us what she was REALLY talking about. The boy had some body art, which was terrifying in that it had taken the tatoo artist 3 hours to perform, and he had ear-rings. Finally, he had nipple-rings. Ah, that's why Grandma wants to see his nipples...weird.
