This past weekend, my boy Joe and I took my grandparents out for their xmas present: a trip to the South Pacific at the 5th Avenue Theatre and then Sazerac for dinner.
My grandpa is a special sort of 90 something year old. VERY RELIGIOUS. As in, at some point between
sane 70 and now, he became a "Catholic" man who:
(1) Believes in a church that does not recognize the Pope.
(2) Participates in a strictly Latin mass that lasts 1+ (painful - I went, once) hours in a church that requires women to wear DOILIES (is that the plural of doily?) on their heads while praying.
(3) Fears that all of his family is going to HELL if they do not convert to this new (or old? not sure) Catholocism. As in, he recently told my parents (his son and DIL) that their son (my lil bro Gabe) was born out of wedlock because their marriage was never valid in the eyes of his church.. or something.
Random Thursday insertion: apparently I use parenthesis alot when I'm drunky~~~
Anyway... so we went to the awesome play The South Pacific, and then this awesome restaurant The Sazerac, and while at dinner,
OLD RELIGOUS GRANDPA looking back and forth between me and Joe: So what kind of relations do two have?
JOE: omg omg omg wtf omg
ME: practiced at interpretating half deaf grandpa, realizes he said "what kind of RELIGOUS VIEWS do you have" because that's obviously ALL he cares about, whether we're going to Hell or not.
Umm RELIGOUS VIEWS.. what RELIGOUS VIEW DO YOU HAVE??
Joe: ""Relations we have?"
Me: "RELIGIOUS VIEWS"
Joe: Oh, cuz I was gonna say, "EVERYTHING BUT ANAL"
Joe didn't actually say that. But afterwards he told me he was thinking about it. And that's TMI. No??
somewhat very meh carrghh how do I use this damn thing??? disappointed in the Quality of this blogpost. Wednesday Trivia Night = WARNING! BAD! DANGER! I am "tipsy" as they say..
PPS Update my Grandma is NOT hard of hearing and she heard the whole thing and new exactly what Joe thought grandpa said and read his face and mine and just started cracking up... one of those laughs that had heads turning :-) Love her.
