While I’m thinking about family stories, memory of my other Grandpa (mom’s dad) that I just kinda remember and giggle at occasionally:
This was around the time when Britney Spears was in the news for her (completely understandable absolutely reasonable) mental breakdown and my mom and I drove out to see my Grandpa. We would do that some Sundays, go out after church and bring enough food so that we could all eat lunch and then he could eat on it during the week.
So my mom and grandpa are talking and I think Britney Spears was in the news so much that he remembered her name. Also my grandpa was a farmer turned accountant and I think he only got newspapers for the business section... he had no clue who celebrities were, is what I’m saying. But I just have this very clear memory of him looking at my mom and kind of sighing before asking:
“Daughter... who is Britney Spears?”
