I will never understand some of the things my grandma says. She grew up in India where my dad was born. A couple of years ago, my brother and dad went to India for vacation. My brother brought back pictures and videos. One was a video of the two of them riding an elephant. While showing the video, my brother turned to my grandma and asked, “Grandma, did you ever ride an elephant when you lived in India?” She looked at him like he was saying something ridiculous and said, “Of course I did. What? You don’t think I went to school?”
I just don’t know. Maybe her hearing is just that bad. Maybe she was telling a joke. Or maybe she rode an elephant to school. Everyone in the room was so flabbergasted that no one managed to ask her for clarification.
