    She’s Not A Catho-Holic

    | USA | Friends, Grandparents, LGTBQ, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (My grandmother is an Irish immigrant, and it always surprises everyone that she’s a believer in equal rights for all given that she was raised Irish Catholic. She meets a friend of mine for the first time who’s very heavily tattooed with demonic-looking artwork.)

    Grandmother: *poking my friends arm* “Oh, that’s quite pretty.”

    Friend: “Um… thanks?”

    Grandmother: “Do you get lots of comments on those?”

    (She pauses to watch a news report on a new anti-gay rights law people are trying to pass, and starts mumbling in Irish.)

    Friend: *quietly, to me* “What’s she mad about?”

    Me: *laughing* “Do you want the censored translation?”

    Friend: “Well, no. I mean is she mad because they’re passing the law or because—”

    Grandmother: *to my friend* “I’m old, not an a**-hole!”

    (Shocked silence.)

    Me: *to my friend* “Welcome to the family.”
