Not my grandma! Background, she is 94, in a LTC, has major medical problems, severe chronic pain and to top it off she fell last week and cracked ribs.
I was in visiting her last night and our conversation went...
Me: So what do you want for Christmas
Grandma: Mostly just stuff for the funeral
Me: Whose funeral?
Grandma: Mine, I'm done here.
Me: Done here being earth?
Grandma: Yep, so a few things I need..I just ordered my burial dress from the catalog but I need my hair done.
Me: Ummm, you've lived for 94 years with major medical issues, why do you think the end is near
Grandma: I just feel it, but if I'm not gone by January I want you to hit me over the head..one hard crack with a big stick!
Me: Um, that might give you what you want but I'd end up in jail.
Grandma: So when you said if I needed anything just ask...you didn't really mean it?
As you can see she has a great sense of humor but if anyone overheard that convo...yikes!
