So instead of writing an enlightening and spiritually uplifting post, I decided to copy and paste from a list I kept of the funny things that my dad's parents said when they visited over Christmas break. Enjoy.
•Grandpa Oda: (pointing to a door) "Where does this lead to?"
Dad: "It's a cupboard."
•Me: "do you have a tissue?"
Grandma: "Yeah I got some!" (Pulls out a gallon bag full of tissues)
•Grandpa: "Everything I'm wearing is from Costco."
•Grandma Oda: "See those tombstones over there? They say "I told you I was sick."
•Grandma: "I'll go buy the prune juice. It's a special kind; it's the strongest one."
Dad:"you can use my Metamucil if you want."
Grandma: "It doesn't work fast enough."
•Me: "You got some white chocolate on your lip."
Grandma: "Are you sure it's not snot?"
•Grandma: "That's why Sam (grandpa Oda) said he liked me compared to other Japanese girls; I had boobs."
•Grandma: "I don't know why, but every time Sam falls, I laugh."
•(grandpa reading the obituary in the paper) "All these dead people look young. It must be the humidity."
•Grandma: "I always wondered why people get so ornery when they get old, but I guess that makes us glad when they die. If they were sweet till the end that'd be so sad."
•Us: "Do you mind if we go to the mall?"
Grandma: "Yeah that's fine. Sam likes to sit and look at all the girls."
•Grandpa: "Debbie, we don't need dinner tonight."
Grandma: "Yeah Sam ate all the samples at Costco."
Grandpa: "Only the ones that looked good..."
•(Christmas Eve, eating Jerusalem dinner.) Grandpa: "is that pancake?" Us: "It's naan; Indian bread."
Grandpa:"what's that brown stuff?"
Grandma: "are those beans?"
Us: "No, they're olives."
Grandpa: "This bread stuff (naan) is good. It's like tortillas."
•Us: "We don't get ready in the morning for Christmas, so don't worry about it." Grandma: "Well, I gotta draw my eyebrows."
Grandpa: "Yeah, and put in her teeth."
•Us: "merry Christmas Grandpa! And happy birthday!"
Grandma: "Oh yeah, it's your birthday..."
Grandpa: "It's my birthday? Not tomorrow? It's Christmas? It's the 25th?"
•Grandpa: "what's that word for when you write on your phone?"
•Grandma: "When I win the lottery I'm gonna get a face lift."
•Grandpa: "I've never had a drink in my life...hardly."
•(Grandma talking about Grandpa): "don't believe anything he says. Especially about my driving."
•Grandpa pointing to our tennis machine: "Is this a car wash?"
Me: "No it's for tennis."
Grandpa: "Oh, a pressure washer?"
•Grandma giving a prayer: "...please bless grandma and grandpa that they can try to be productive and busy...in the name of Jesus Christ, amen." Grandpa: "Gee, that was so long, I almost fell asleep."
Grandma: "Yeah I know--I didn't know how to end it."
•Grandma: "Well young kids don't like talking to us old people. We talk about doctors and pain and pills; they talk about dates and boys."
Grandpa: "I talk about old ladies.
Grandma: "Yeah, he dreams about those old ladies at Costco giving him samples."
•(talking about the kingdoms of glory) Grandpa: "well I'm going to the celestial kingdom anyway..."
Me: "Grandma, I'm probably going to put stuff about you on the Internet..."
Grandma: "I don't care."
Hilarious, right? Needless to say, my Christmas break was filled with good old fashioned entertainment via my grandparents.
And here are some pictures I took of my grandparents. The majority being of them eating or sleeping.
