it’s always nice when zulieka blogs too

youd think a second child would slow her down, but not to jinx it,

but zulieka has been blogging more nowadays than in previous years

today she tells us about her grandmother.

My grandmother is an ugly woman, and at 86, age has actually improved her appearance by giving the down-turned, over-full lips and small, lightless eyes an excuse. She doesn’t have any wrinkles, which is kind of amazing, but she does just sort of droop. She is a bossy, stubborn, and fiercely independent old toad. She makes fun of her own frugality, telling me that she has not bought new clothes since the 1970’s (not true, as she is actually quite fashion-forward) and joking that she spends not a penny on food by eating trash.

delightful surprise awaits
