How you know you're too busy

When your grandmother calls your father and tells him to tell you to blog more, and you don't because you just don't have time.


So much has been going on. No matter where I start, I'm sure to miss something. But I've got to keep Grandmother happy. She is my identical-twin grandmother after all.

Incidentally, she doesn't think we're identical twins. It's obvious to everyone else, mind you. But when I say it to her, she announces, "I don't see it!" - almost like she doesn't like the comparison. Even so, I still say it.

One time I said to her, "If I were you, I would be my favorite grandchild. I mean, look at us, we're practically identical twins!"

Her reply could be translated to, "Yeah, right! Keep telling yourself that, lady."

During Primates and Pancakes, she was sitting in the living room and my bosslady from work went in and introduced herself. She said, "Hello, I'm {her name}, but Jennifer calls me her bosslady."

My grandmother replied, "Well, Jennifer calls me her identical-twin grandmother."

Later, my comedy friend Holly went in and introduced herself. And my grandmother introduced herself as Jennifer's identical-twin grandmother.

I don't know, but I think she might be warming up to the title.
