My Girly Grandpa (RIP 2/14/2009)
I remember when my grandpa was still alive,
He have the wrinkles
And complain all the time
He's single, a widow...and wish he’s young
I tell him he’s handsome all the time
Just to boost up his confident and bring him a smile
One time I took him out to the pagoda
He saw a woman his age is kind of cute for his age
He just want to flirt around with her but she tell him
“Go get a life old man!“
He replied, “I got a life, with you beside, I may appear as old, but my strength is strong as any young man!”
I had a good laugh at my grandfather that day
Counting how many grandma he have flirted all those years
He asked her for a date
She said no but continue following her around the pagoda
After the prayer he say to me
Go take me to JC kiddo and get me a cream
I look at my grandpa and say what cream?
He laugh and say…cream to get rid of my wrinkles…
I'm like are you serious?
I told him its for woman and he said...well I have skin like any woman!
When I took him to JC Penny
He say...oh that is expensive ($39.99) and he would go around asking for discount
He explain to the retailer that its for his wife
She would get really upset if she wouldn’t get this gift that night
I cover my face with my hand
Shaking my head and chant “Oh Buddha”
And called my mom and tell her, “I think grandma possessed grandpa”
