Tonight was just your average Wednesday game of MahJongg with grandma and her friends. This time, my grandma put out hard salami, crackers, cheese, fruit AND cookies–clearly she was feeling generous. Yet again I was the only one who ate any of it while grandma’s friends just wanted iced tea with milk. There wasn’t much discussion at the table this evening aside from the game itself–I won one round–but there was on particular conversation that stuck out. The “WeingerGate” scandal came up somehow–oh yes, I was tweeting and one of the ladies said “isn’t that how you get into trouble?” Naturally, the conversation evolved from there.
“Shumer thinks so highly of him.”
“He was set to do big things…until he took his pants off!”
Elder women are absolutely lovely to hang out with. Their point of view on current events and pop-culture is somehow…refreshing!
Next week I plan to ask them about Hugh Hefner’s cancelled wedding.
