A Great-Grand Insult

| Related | March 18, 2015

(All my life, everyone in my dad’s family has told me how much I look like my great-grandmother, who died years before I was born. I have never seen a picture of her, however. At my grandmother’s funeral, we’re gathered at her house, when one of my dad’s cousins hands me a framed picture of an extremely large, scowling woman who could charitably be called ‘plain’ at best.)

Cousin: “Here! I found this and thought you would like to have it.”

Me: *puzzled* “Um, thanks? Who is it?”

Cousin: “Can’t you tell? That’s [Great-Grandmother]!”

Me: *speechless*

Dad: *beaming* “You look just like her!”
