The girls' band teacher asked for parents to help measure the kids for their band uniforms. I volunteered to go and asked Grammie to join me. The teacher needed teams of two so one person would measure and the other would write the information.
I told the girls I asked Grammie because she has such nice handwriting. I thought they'd crack a joke about my messy handwriting. Instead, they said, "Plus, Grammie is too short to measure the kids. They are all taller than her."
Poor Grammie. Even when I'm trying to compliment her, there is a short joke waiting.
