My lovely young granddaughter. It was just the other day when you were born. My God, how time flies. On July 7th she will be 14 years old. Combine the IQ of our entire family and it MIGHT equal hers. She is so smart. She is in gifted and talented classes at school. I carry a dictionary around when she talks about some of her classes.
As I write this post, she is getting ready for a date….yes a DATE. This boy in her class asked her to go to a movie with him. Now this is not a bad thing. His mother will chaparone….sit a couple of rows back in the movie. The social outing will be good for her. She has a wonderful set of values. She won't compromise them for anyone. I teased her last night as she was watching me put on my make up. "Want me to put some makeup on your eyes?" "Oh no" she says…."I won't wear make up". "Good for you honey, you are beautiful without it."
This morning I was chatting with her Uncle, The Bastard, about this date. "Damn, she isn't old enough for that is she?" I explain her age, the chaparone etc. "Like I said, she isn't old enough!" "Someone should give the boy a heads up, He will have a lot of really pissed off rednecks if he does anything wrong. We know good body hiding places. Killin will be too good for him if he hurts my niece." I feel the same…..start plotting.
We trust our girl……..but we know boys!
