More Grandpaisms

If you liked my granddad’s “whorehouse” comment earlier, you’ll like this.

I went into his bedroom to watch TV with him as he was falling asleep. I asked him what he was watching. “Oh, I don’t know,” he said. “Well, what do you want to watch?” He can’t push the buttons, so I was going to help. He hesitated, thinking. “The black man.” I laughed. “Which black man, Poppy?” He looked very confused. “Well,” he said. “There’s only one.”

(I asked his nurse: turns out he wanted to watch Obama on the 10:00 news.)
