You know what the funny thing about grandparents is??? Whenever they call their "child's" house - they no longer want to talk to their child...they immediately ask if THE GRANDCHILD is home. What's up with that?! lol

True, but I don't feel too guilty. My mom only calls to neb in my life or complain about something.

Puleeze! If only my parents had an answering machine like that. Theirs says, "If you're one of our children, hang up. We're not interested!"
As per usual my dear friend, this was hilarious!
