Today, my great-grandmother uttered the phrase, "Just because I'm gray up here, doesn't mean I'm gray down there!" FML

Ha, this got posted really fast. I am the OP. This actually had happened a while ago. To answer some questions, my great grandma had been drinking and had been talking about how her two daughters only want money from her. And that when she died, "I'll leave one dollar in the bank and let them fight over it!" An evil cackle included. I can only guess that this brought around her age into her mind, since she's in her late 80's and probably only has 15 years left with luck, because the fml was the next words out of her mouth. Maybe to comfort herself, I honestly don't know. But it was followed by her looking at my female cousin and saying, "I can teach you how to get into the V formation." Needless to say, we were both horrified to the point of irrational laughter.


...but I bet the mental image wasn't hairy.

Not hairy..? Oh god you just mentally scarred me.


So, just to get that clear, the carpet doesn't match the drapes?

I'm hoping that she said that to OP's great-grandfather and OP overheard. At least it's slightly better.

That is something you do not need to know about your great grandma :S

We all need to know about our great grandma's well being.

Unless she offered to show you, I do not see the problem

At least she'a still happy with the way she is and taking the ageing process like a pro!

omg why would you share that! Holy crap someone pass ME the bleach.

Someday, somewhere, somebody, might just do exactly that, dear.

Sometimes the carpet doesn't match the drapes.

Your face makes that comment hilarious (yet terrifying) ...

Let's take a moment to discuss your own profile picture here, 21 dearest.

Speaking as a person well over 50, gray "up here" usually means there is gray all over. Yes, kids: all the body hair will go gray eventually. And, FWIW, "the carpet" is usually a bit darker than "the drapes", even in blondes.

I bet you're wishing that grandma would show you, huh? Have fun in Caribbean man. Good stuff.

Also, and I don't mean to scare you, since she's a great grand mother, there is a slight chance she doesn't even have a carpet.

No carpet? Maybe she installed... hard wood floors.

@55 I'm in my late 40s and have been going bald since Bush 41 was in office. I only wish that the hair fell out *below* the neck, too. I hate being a damn Wookiee, especially since the fashion for men now is to be completely hairless below the ears.

Oh. You're a dude. I got confused with the "Bush" 41 and thought it was some slang term for 41 year old pussy.

It's so fitting that your comment # is 69
