An elderly couple was speaking with a college aged grandchild of theirs. They asked what he was studying for, he replied:
"I don't quite know yet"
Without missing a second the elderly man replied,
"Ahh, going for your M.R.S., I see."
Took the kid a while before he started blushing.
Last week I left the delivery room to go meet my dad so that he could meet his first grandchild for the first time.
Emotions were high and smiles all around... and he was carrying a Costco tub of mixed nuts he had been snacking on.
All visitors must wash their hands before entering the room and as I was opening the door he got me with "Can you handle my nuts?"
I could hear his proud giggling as I walked away shaking my head... he has bestowed on me a great responsibility.
So, my grandfather by the name of Leonard might lose his foot soon, due to diabetes/infection. Not at all hilarious, sure, but me and him have an awesome sense of humor. He lost his toe a few weeks back and I asked him if they placed it in a jar. He said, "No, they made it into stew."
My mother was less than pleased with our toe jokes but that was not the groaning moment.
A series of texts about my grandfather losing the entire foot ensues between my uncles, mom, sister and I. It went like this:
Me: If gramps loses his foot, in the worst case of scenarios, how would I go around asking the OR to put it in a jar? (directed to my sister who's a nurse)
Mom: OMG. Bad.
Sister: Ew. Lol.
Me: Oh man, if in forty years I'm ever at a family reunion all drunk, I'd be doing that. "Come my niece/nephew/grandchild! Speak of all your woes to the foot!"
Mom: STOP! Bad Grandchild!
Sister: You need a nap.
Me: I'd put the foot in an estate so that it can be passed down for many generations. It'll be the GrandPAW of Leo!
(Talking about my Thanksgiving food baby)
Me - Yep, future grandchild right here!
Dad - I always knew it'd be a little shit.
Bought a new house with plaster walls, mentioned I needed a stud finder to hang pictures.
Parents come over today to see grandchild and my mom looks at my dad and asks did you bring the stud finder?
My dad immediately responds "Why would I need too, I'm here aren't I?"
