It has been a tradition with us to take our granddaughter Christmas shopping just before Christmas. She is fourteen years old, going on thirty-five! Thus far, her parents give her money to buy them presents. Every year she says the same thing, “It seems strange for you to give me money to buy you presents.” Well, yeah, but until you get a job, that is the way it will stay!

She is, if I do say so myself, a lovely thing with a sweet heart. However, she often misses out on our “reindeer fun” and “boomer” senses of humor. We have tried for the last eight or ten years to get her to relax and have some fun, but it appears we only embarrass her. Take for example today when I met these lovely ladies in Victoria’s Secret (see my other blog). She would not even stand with us for a photo opportunity. Somehow, women, scantily clad was more than see could take, or maybe it was the fact that her Papaw kept trying to pick them up in front of her Granny. The child just does not know how to have fun!

We do have our moments together as a family and I am saddened when I think that we may only have a couple of more years to enjoy this tradition. Soon, she will be running around with friends or worse yet, a horny, pimply faced young man who wants to buy her things other than perfume in Victoria’s Secret!

By the time we made it to Wasabi’s for an early supper, she had calmed down enough that me taking pictures of my plate for my blog did not seem as embarrassing to her. Maybe it was because she had her mouth full!

Anyway, this is my favorite part of the Christmas Season.

I'm VERY tempted to say something rude like "Very nice. So, how long you gonna make me wait?"... But I wouldn't go there. She's got that look on her face. Might stab you with a chop stick. Nice action with the chop stick by the way.

Oh, she can be brutal to her Papaw alright. By action, you mean how she stabs a bite with the pointed end?

Me, on the other hand, ate it all accept for some rice with the sticks!

She's my sweety!
