What Granny Said

Granny said S-H-I-T and spelled it out. She never said the actual word. Grannies were different then. Now they say everything just like the rest of the world, toddlers included. I recall the first time I said ‘shit’ out loud. I was in 7th grade, at the swimming pool. I was walking by myself and uttered the forbidden word to myself. It changed my life, saying that word out loud. Now I say everything just like the grannies and toddlers.

  1. Granny said a lot, and nothing at all
    She would comment on the world around her
    As she saw it
    Which was not how we saw it
    The disease in her brain produced people that were not there
    Situations that did not happen
    But, it was all real to her
