Bee Afraid

| Chester, England, UK | Aunts & Uncles, Grandparents, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

(I’m working for my mum and uncle’s business and am visiting their head office for a few days for some extra training. My grandma lives in the flat next door, and often pops in to visit. My mum and uncle have lots of stories of the crazy things she says and does during these visits. The rest of us are pretty convinced they’re at least a little exaggerated. My grandma pays one of her visits and my mum’s on the phone when she walks in.)

Grandma: “Oh, hello, I was just wanting to talk to [mum].”

Me: “She’s, on the phone right now. Do you want me to give her a message, or get her to call you when she’s done so you can come and have a chat?”

Grandma: “No, no. I’ll wait.”

(We make small talk about my job and her day, and eventually after about 30 minutes my mum finishes her call.)

Mum: “Hello mum. Is everything okay?”

Grandma: *sounding excited* “Oh, yes! I just wanted to come in and tell you something!”

Mum: “Okay.”

Grandma: “I saw a bee!”

(My mum and I exchange a confused look.)

Mum: “Uh… great?”

Grandma: “Well, that means it’s nearly spring! See you later!” *toddles out of the office*

Uncle: *popping his head around the door of our office* “Did… I just hear that right?”

Mum: *to me* “I told you we weren’t exaggerating!”

Me: “I will never doubt you again!”
