Soil Her Britches

I was all set to get off my computer but saw this prompt and laughed out loud. I have to write this quick response.

If one of your late ancestors were to come back from the dead and join you for dinner, what things about your family would this person find the most shocking?

GG grandma

I’m not sure who she is; she’s in a shoe box full of photos and no one is alive to remember.  What great entertainment that would be to have her come over for dinner.  She would come to my house which I live in by myself because I left my husband. I very rarely wear dresses.  We aren’t eating meat for dinner, that would pretty shocking.

Even though I’m the ‘old-hippy-pot-head-on-my-own-crazy-person’ of the family, my upstanding, straight-laced  teacher sister would have that old lady swooning.

My sister married an Indian, (native) and had a baby. Then she married another Indian and had another baby. Her children are half-breeds! Then she married and divorced again.  Now she lives with someone else and they have a legal co-habitation agreement.

This was shocking stuff 100 years ago! Now it’s  modern-families

Sorry, to my sister and niece for making fun. love you.
