rollin' down the street smokin' endo

Guess what. Today is my Grandma's 84th birthday. Doh. What an old fogie.

We all call her "grandma" but she thinks it'll confuse the baby since she's his GREAT-grandma. "Ba-chan," the word for grandma in Japanese sounds decrepit to me. I hate that name. So...

Gram: I want everyone to call me O.G. from now on.
Me: Daahhah-are you freakin' kidding me? O.G. as in Original Gangsta?
Gram: "No no, O.G. 'Old Grandma.'"
Me: "Forget it. Pimps up hos down, you asked for it."
Gram: "What? O.G. Old Grandma - That what I want to be called."
Me: "Laid back, with your mind on your money and your money on your mind."

Happy birthday, Original Gangsta.

Awww, that is sweet.

And funny as all get-out. Happy birthday to your granny (pardon, I meant 'O.G.')!!

Also, in Vietnamese, we call our grannies Ba too. Ba Noi for paternal and Ba Ngoai for maternal. Monkey's part Japanese and remembers calling his granny (who was half Japanese) Ba too!
