Deathly Funny

, , , , , | Related | October 21, 2014

(I am seven years old. It is my grandma’s 73rd birthday. I always make a card instead of buying one.)

Me: “Here, Gramma!”

Card: “Happy Birthday, Grammy! I can’t believe you’re 73 and not dead yet. I still love you.”

(My grandma starts laughing hysterically.)

Mom: “What’s so funny?”

Grandma: “Look at what your son gave me.”

(My mom starts laughing. Everyone starts coming over to see what’s so funny. With everyone laughing at my gift, I start to get mad. I wasn’t trying to be funny. That’s just how I am.)

Grandma: “Oh, [My Name]. I love my gift. This one’s a keeper.”

(Fourteen years later, my grandma died at the ripe old age of 87. My mom and I were cleaning out her place. I found that card in a drawer alongside other keepsakes like my grandpa’s license; he had died twenty years earlier. That one was a keeper indeed.)
