    you're the grandma and not the grandpa, otherwise you'd probably be in jail by now!  (Just kidding- more or less).

      It's a tragic shame that we even have to think in those terms.

      Oh yeah, she is Granny :)

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

    •  Ha! Yes, I'm grandma and not grandpa. (4+ / 0-)

      I have developed a disturbing habit of referring to myself in the third person when talking to or about my grandchildren.  I say stuff like, "Grandma remembers what it was like to be a girl," as though I'm speaking about a different person in another room or something.  I don't know how I got into this disturbing pattern but I know it's firmly in place.  I have to make a conscious effort not to do it.  It's a pattern I need to break (and so does grandma!)  ;-)
