Relatives that you got to pick, how excellent is that! It is very normal for grandmas to focus on socks, or undies, or some other what the heck item. I know mine sure did.
My grandparents were great, if rather kooky. I noticed on my last road trip home that I'm turning into the goofiest one - Bargain Billy. (Really, that's what we called my grandma. She called herself "your old fat granny"; she signed every card with that.) She had an annoying habit of reading signs out loud and here we were, less than five miles from home, and I hear myself say "Great Burgers". Oh my Lord, when did I turn into her? My daughters don't remember her as she died when they were little but you can bet my sister and mom made fun of me when I told the story. Thanks to primal living, I'm not planning on signing any cards with "your old fat granny", though.
