Day 938 - Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime

What's crazier than a pipeline 5,000 feet on the ocean floor not having a simple shut-off valve although every westernized toilet has one? Why it's...Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime!

Crazy Grandma and Lazy Grandpa had a tough day babysitting Emma. Emma was in one of her moods, and there's very little to do to comfort a grumpy toddler. All you can do is let them throw their temper tantrums and watch them hit their head repeatedly against the patio door.

Crazy Grandma told me Emma even gave her the evil eye a couple of times. Emma would just stare at Crazy Grandma with her eyes saying, "Make a move and I'll shank you, beeeeeatch!"

While recapping the day's events for me, Crazy Grandma said, "Oh! Dat Emma! She one toughy cookie, I say! She not happy today not at all. But kid be dat way sometime. Dey human, you know."

For once, I agreed with what Crazy Grandma said. Despite her inability to say the letter R and the difficulty she has with grammar, I understood what she was saying. Just like any person, Emma will have her bad days and that's just the way it is. Continue to love her for who she is, and get on with it.

Regrettably, Crazy Grandma continued to talk and ended our talk on this note...

"I tell you, Scotty. You tink she bad now? Wait until she get her period!"

And with that, I'm going to turn off my laptop and roll up in a fetal position.

You're stories are frequently side-splitting. Have you ever considered your hand at fiction? I see you're in TV production; you certainly have a future in reality TV!

PS How come Colin never makes any cameos in your posts?
