Shocked You Awake

, , , , , | Related | April 11, 2018

(My mother and I are staying with my grandmother for the week. We are sitting in the living room watching television in our pajamas.)

Grandmother: *to me* “What time is it?”

Me: “Nine forty-five.”

Mom: “Do y’all ever feel like you just wait all night to go to bed?”

Grandmother: “I do that all the time, and I hope that I won’t wake up…”

(Mom and I look over, shocked, as my grandmother pauses.)

Grandmother: “…as much in the middle of the night.”

(We all cracked up laughing. What a time to take a pause in your sentence!)
