- Wedding: April 2018
Just had a rather Abbott & Costello-esque phone conversation with my 90 year old grandmother..thought this might make everyone laugh…I know I did, after I hung up of course. Just so everyone knows, I was named after her, so before I got married, we had the same first and last name…ok, here’s what happened:
Me: This is Nona, can I help you?
Her: Nona? Nona? Is that you?
Me: Yes Grandma, it’s me…what’s going on?
Her: Where are you?
Me: I’m a work, you called me at the office.
Her: Oh…where am I?
Me: I don’t know, where are you?
Her: I’m at home! What kind of a question is that?
Me: I’m sorry Grandma, don’t know what I was thinking…
Her: Good, well, what did you need?
Me: You called me Grandma, you needed something.
Her: That’s right! I do need something, do you have lipstick in your office?
Me: Lipstick…? Did you have a particular shade in mind?
Her: I ordered lipstick from Hermann at church and I think he sent it to you by mistake.
Me: Why would Hermann send your lipstick to me?
Her: Because we have the same name, Nona.
Me: But we don’t anymore Grandma, I’m married now.
Her: Well, I still call you by your maiden name…
Me: How would Hermann even get my address?
Her: He doesn’t have it! That’s the trouble with you Nona, it’s all so confusing! Forget about the lipstick until I call you again in an hour about it…
Me: Ok Grandma, I’ll forget about it until then, I love you.
