Grandpa made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'
One day my grandmother was out, and my Grandpa was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little ‘tea set’ as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.
Grandpa was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of ‘tea’, which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, Grandma came home.
Grandpa made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was ‘just the cutest thing!’ Grandma waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Grandpa, and she watched him drink it up.
Then she said, (as only a grandma would), “Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water, is the toilet?”
