Conversations with 90 - Boston Edition

I have some rather hilarious conversations with a certain 90-year-old I love. You have to imagine a really thick Southern accent and her talking REALLY LOUD, as if I wrote her part in all caps. I won't, but let's say I did....

Her:  Whirur dey from?

Me: Chechnya

Her: I don't know whir dat is...

Me: Near Russia

Her: Ya know dat cerazy feller dat mailed the poison to dat Miss'sippi senator an' Ohbama (rhymes with Alabama)? Dey a'rested him, sounds crazy as a loon...dey said on the tee vee dat dose boys er from Georgia ya reckon dey all did it together?

Me: They're not from that Georgia. They mean the Georgia near Russia.

Her: I can't make out their name in the writin on the tee vee do ya know what it is?

Me: It's Russian...hard to spell.

Her: What's it start with?

Me: T

Her:.... den what?

Me: S

Her: .... AND?

Me: A???

Her: ... what else????

Me: It's Russian, I can't spell it when I'm not looking at it!!!

Her:  Well whirur dey from?

Her: I don't know whir dat is...

Me: Near Russia

Her: You said dat bu I still don know whir  that is...but dose boys mus be gone crazy or sumpin.

Sounds like a comedy routine. But in many ways it is probably better that she is confused - she doesn't need to have to deal with all that tragedy. We are all so glad to see it coming to an end (hopefully).

Oh, she knows exactly what's going on...she's just a little fuzzy on some of the details!
