My grandmother on clutter.
This is a guest spot for a beautiful quote from my cousin’s other grandmother (who is just as funny as our Beachie): “That looks like a ninjen turtle? Haven’t you ever heard of a ninjen turtle?!? See, you don’t even have to put me on the pot!”
My grandmother on feminism: “there was this lady that worked up at ——- and all the guys hated her because she was real smart and did really well and they would say, ‘oh she’s down on her knees for all those guys’. You know what that means? Blowin ‘em! Well, I don’t know if you know what that means! You know, sometimes I say something and I think ‘my god, Nancy! You’re such a lady’.”

My grandmother (Nancy) on her own butt: “I think what bothers me most is that I lost my butt. I’ve always had a nice shape to my butt. One time I went to a fundraiser with Mary Vitillo and this young guy came up to me and said, ‘Nancy, you have a really nice butt…for an old lady!’ and I said, YOU LITTLE SHIT! But he was right.”
