WeirdoPosted: April 20, 2012
Granny is not a fan of Mark. When I told her about his red eyes and lengthy bathroom break she immediately concluded, “He did drugs in the bathroom.” She’s never been one to hesitate about jumping to the most scandalous option.
When I revealed that he asked me to avoid eye contact she gasped in disbelief, “Listen to me, when something strange like that happens it happens because he’s a strange fellow.” Although Mark was definitely an oddball I felt Granny was being a little quick to judge. I reminded her of the incident when he tooth fell out on her date with Prune Face. He didn’t run up and leave because she had an embarrassing accident. Instead he soothed her self-conscious nerves and made her feel at ease.
“Yeah, and then he never called me again,” she reminded me.
I stuck to my guns, maintaining that the considerate thing to do was stick it out and let the guy get his story off his chest. “This is the difference, I didn’t know my tooth was going to fall out… He knew he had an issue and he still came to meet you.” Sometimes I just like to argue with Granny for the sake of arguing. Clearly she was right, but part of me will always be the bratty middle granddaughter.
“I hope you didn’t touch him,” she warned. “You don’t know what you don’t know. Besides that, he was too short. He sounds like a weirdo.”
