Doing Chores For Grandma

Next month we visit my grandmother. I anticipate seeing her, even if she has become a little stubborn in her old age. I won’t embarrass her by divulging her age, but let’s just say she’s a woman with exhaustively seasoned wisdom.

The last time I saw her I brought in my Yamaha PSR keyboard so I could perform some music for her. She enjoyed it, but regrettably since she is not entirely there, she kept disrupting me to inquire of me how to clean her computer. Yes, she actually uses a computer. And maybe she was interrupting me because I am simply that weak at playing the keyboard.

I constantly discover something puzzling at her home when I see her. Last time, I discovered several books on penny stocks on her cocktail table. My grandma learning about penny stock trading? That’s bizarre. I wonder what I will encounter on her coffee table this week.

This week will make for a busy sojourn. I must install her fresh Emtek door knobs and air conditioner filters then repair her garden cart. I likewise need to bring her old pots and pans to charity because she just purchased a new set of pots and pans to replace them. As a reward, she claims to also have bought one of the best ice cream makers and the very best of all the electic coffee makers. I am thankful, yet I also have to chuckle as she invariably claims to have or utilize only the very best of this or that.

If all proceeds well, she will use both to serve me some delicious coffee at dawn and ice cream in the evening. This sounds like more than pay back enough for my effort. I am happy to assist her for nothing, but a little rich coffee and creamy ice cream does not bother me.
