Three Things That Might Make Grampas Laugh!

Author: Brad  |  Category: Boardman Views, Family, Humor

One thing about having lots of grandkids is the fact that you never know just what’s going to happen next.  Since I have ten of them, what’s coming “today” is always an adventure.  Take for example, one of my older granddaughters, Caitlin.

She was on Facebook recently describing a little event down at the gas station earlier that day.  This fact produced my first laugh.  The things they put on Facebook.

She’s always had an abundance of long gorgeous hair, but lately she’s been fooling around with the color.  Apparently, just prior to this episode she had one of those sessions at the beauty salon that didn’t go precisely as planned.

This produced my second grin. Well, okay. I laughed.

Caitlin: Got out to pump gas and the dude next to me screamed… I looked over at him and he said *oh gosh im sorry your hair scared me I thought you were going to rob the Gas station!!!     * i said No why would i do that.   He goes *your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off. Needless to say Im getting it darkened if not a different color! …The other guy in front of me pumping gas you could tell was trying not to laugh!

Caitlin’s Friend: That made my day .  :)  Well the great thing about hair is it always grows out and you can always change it.  And that guy is paranoid if he thinks you’d rob a bank with hair that recognizable. Lol

I’m not gonna lie. Gramma and I were laughing so hard we almost cried.

“*Your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off.”  Hysterical!

We were just visualizing this whole thing and thinking of our dear granddaughter who has, over the years, had a bit of a fondness for getting stuff done to herself (e.g., tattoos, piercings, etc.) that, frankly, just doesn’t look good…at least to me.

To my credit, though, I’ve never screamed!

Well, that’s three.

You’re in Boardman Country!

Make yourself at home,

Brad

    Hey Brad! Great story and I can relate. Personally, I love changing the color of my hair (I’ve even considered… purple or blue). Currently, I’m sticking with my red look. Okay, it’s not red per se, this one is called copper something, but I love it.

    I can’t help but wonder what in the world a guy is thinking to associate hair color with robbery?? A bit paranoid… or an ex-wife maybe? LOL!

    Thanks Theresa.

    Someday we’ll have to see a picture of you in your red hair!
