Quotes from Nellie Lee

I spent yesterday afternoon with my 94 year old grandmother.  Sharp, sassy, stubborn and wonderful. This is a sampling of her comments. Oh, to be this awesome at that age.

“There are two sides to every pancake.”

“Obama would get it all done if he didn’t have to deal with all those other people.”

“I’m not stupid, you know.”

“I’d like to take some skin off that insurance company.”

“I’m just doing what the lawyer told me.”

“Don’t you say a thing you wouldn’t put in your mouth”. (Her reference to my accidental slip of the word “shit”)

“An abortion is between a woman, her God and her family.  The government shouldn’t have a thing to say about it.”

    “Don’t you say a thing you wouldn’t put in your mouth”.

    I laughed my ass off….oh, wait….let me rephrase that.

    Phillybikeboy: You have no idea what I’ve thought after she told me that…or maybe you do!!!

  3. Teenie Says:

    That kinda leaves one on the fence about the “F” word.

  4. adchick Says:

    Teenie: And that one is a favorite of mine…for better or worse. BUT NEVER in front of this special lady. She has earned my immeasurable respect! If I make it to 94, will I be as lucid? I’ll surely be as strong willed! HA!

  5. phillybikeboy Says:

    In that usage, fuck is a verb. Can you put a verb in your mouth?

  6. Teenie Says:

    I suppose you could perform some version of the verb in your mouth. Good question, philly. I should have illustrated my point with the epithet “dick”.
