Plus, I don't do that, remember?
So, last week my grandmother called me to tell me she had some money for me. She said it was specifically to be used for gardening supplies. Before she went into the retirement home, I would go to their home every May long weekend and help do all their spring planting. Yes, yes, aren't I a sweet granddaughter? Please try not to gag on all my sugar, okay?
I'm not a complete selfish bitch and I didn't go "just" because she mentioned money - although I'm sure I'd run faster if it was dangled in front of me with a fishing rod. Forget the damn carrot! I went to visit because it was Mother's Day as well, so I was multitasking.
And here's the money I got...
Not. Fucking. Kidding.
Did you count it? It's Nine dollars...
AND TWO PENCE.
I can't make shit up like that even if I tried. Comedy gold. Screw gardening! I'm going to keep this for the boys' college fund. Isn't copper in demand these days?
Anyhow, thanks Grandma. You always know just what I need.
Also, if you like jewellery (or have a special someone who does) stop by Multitasking Mumma to enter a contest to win some FROM ME. That's right... you heard me! I've been making some pendants and earrings along with a friend of mine, because apparently I need MORE to do with my time.
CHECK IT OUT! I MADE IT ESPECIALLY FOR YOU BLOGOPHILES :)
Is this the same Grandma who gave you a bag of nuts and a cassette tape?ReplyDelete
HAHAHAHA. Old people are so funny. Don't spend that all in one place, mmkay?ReplyDelete
When I was in college (late 90's / early 2000's) I would do odd jobs for people in my neighborhood. I remember an old lady asking for her raingutters cleaned (insert porno music, haha).ReplyDelete
I was on her roof for three and a half hours, scraping and digging out 5-6 years of leaves and gunk. She paid me 50 cents, and smiled when she began telling me how much money that was...
haha, that's sweet, and it's good that you're putting them in the piggy bank. Kids love change. My mom once let me count her pennies and take them to the bank. one time I got five dollars!ReplyDelete
YOU'RE squirrelly?? As soon as I read that first sentence, I was all set with a snarky "watch where you place the hyphen," but you already picked up on it.ReplyDelete
I guess we're birds of a feather.
A good defense against wiseguys is a well-played offense.
By the way, ass fucking probably woulda gotten you more than 9 dollars.
And you wouldn't have had to get your hands dirty.
One in the same. YES :)
Tweet, tweet, my friend.
Gmom is clearly a big spender. Enjoy treating yourself. :)ReplyDelete
Love the "little bit naughty" necklace. Of course I'm more than a little bit so wearing it would be misleading. hehe.
Thanks for having the giveaway! I LOVE the shop and I am still in awe of your talent!ReplyDelete
I should also add thatReplyDelete
A) She completely has her "wits" about her.
B) We've gone to get supplies every year and usually spend over $100 minimum.
C) She's just being a pain in the ass - I think she does it to entertain herself, because she gave me the EVILEST laugh when she gave the bag of pennies to me.
Oh no, Pish, you DID NOT!
Nice post, Lady E.
And ps I didn't say pence she did, I was saying bob and pound and euro because that is what I have from LIVING IN ENGLAND you goob-a-tron. Sigh. Canadians. What're you gonna do.ReplyDelete
We have funky animal money, because no presidents, OK? Who could hate a beaver or a polar bear?ReplyDelete
Some PMS get on our plastic money, but no one is even taught who Laurier or Diefenbaker are any more, anyway.
So, in conclusion, animal money.
That IS a pence, pictured there, very far from home. Nothing to do with us, thank you very much. Look at the silly feathers on that. Only a nation with an ancient love/hate relationship with the French would design that.ReplyDelete
Oh grandma... lol.ReplyDelete
Hahaha - Yes, it's not Canadian currency. I think we stopped using UK money after 1867... but I'm no historian.ReplyDelete
This post cracked me up. I guess when you get old you're given carte blanche to screw with people. I'm looking forward to that.ReplyDelete
I love your grandma.
This is HYSTERICAL! I love old people and your grandmother sounds lovely. :) Happy planting!ReplyDelete
Your grandma is cool with that idea! :DReplyDelete
Got the gardening supplies today - it came to $83... so... yeah.ReplyDelete
