Grandma's Underwear

This past Saturday I tagged along with my parents for their weekly visit to my grandparents at the senior’s residence. After getting Grandma to try on the new dressing gown we had brought for her, she kept trying to pull up her underwear. She asked Mom to buy her some new underwear as hers kept falling down. When asked what size she was wearing and after responding “Large”, it was settled that maybe she should wear a medium size as the large were obviously too big for her and it wouldn’t do for them to fall off while she was walking. To which Grandma replied “Oh, they already did.”

Apparently (earlier that day or another day entirely, we’re not sure) she was walking in the hallway, with her walker, and could feel the underwear falling down so just let them drop and picked them up. Not embarrassed or anything. Just stated the fact.

We roared with laughter!!!

Why does she need underwear? We already know she "doesn't wear a bra anymore." She told Mom that before Christmas.

Commando Grandma - that's just wrong.

Yeah, not really something we want to think about.

I think there are some things about your family that I never, ever, ever, ever, EVER want to know about.
