My Mim also uses normal expressions but mixes up some words.

Like she’ll say “ we’ll play it by year”, instead of “we’ll play it by ear”.

I also remember playing at her house when we were younger, and she had a dark- skinned doll and would call it the “chocolate baby”

Lol older people have no sense of what’s offensive I swear 😂

Whenever one of us grandkids was home sick from school with upset stomachs she’d ask if we were sh*tting through screen doors 😂 I miss her and can’t wait till I can be a totally inappropriate little old lady making fun of my own grandkids

My grandpa who has since passed away had some really funny old sayings, in fact my ex husband told me to write a book. The saying I remember the most were.

”Colder than a witch’s titty in a brass bra”

”Hotter than a festered fart on the Fourth of July”

”It’s like putting a falling a#%hole together”

”Tighter than a bulls ass at fly time” 

Man, I really do miss him.

My nana again had no filter. My parents called my sister Sophie.  They said they hated the name. Mum said it means wisdom and Nana said I’d prefer you called her wisdom.

When I was younger, I said I’d put on some weight. She said yes I could definitely tell you looked more solid 🤨

My husband’s grandma is past 100. She still very much has her body and mind. She tells us so many stories about dancing with all the American officers in the war.  While her boyfriend was off fighting in Europe for 6 years. Anyway her boyfriend came back from the war and she married him. She never stops to remind us that she had one foot on the boat & nearly went back to Usa with one of the American officers. One officer kept sending her letters well after the war and grandpa on one of his business trips to the states,  knocked on this gentleman’s door and said never send my wife letters again!

She’s a real character.  But naughty. At my bridal shower she told all my guests she will never forgive her kids for putting her in a rest home. She was 100 & lucky to be in her own home that long. She’s terribly racist. It’s so embarrassing- we visited her in the hospital after a fall once. She yelled as old people often do ” there’s so many brown people here 🤦‍♀️”

My godmother always says “me muero en ingles” when something shocks her which translates to “I die in English”. We have no idea what it means or where it came from but my whole family says it.

Everytime a car passed him on the road, my grandfather would say, “Go ahead – hell’s only half full!”
