Words of wisdom from my sweet grandmother, who moved into an assisted-living place. (She is in the same place where my other grandmother – the beer-drinking, cigarette-smoking one – was before she died and where she and I watched the Elvis impersonator together one afternoon – it’s slim pickings for Elvis impersonators in northern Wisconsin, but the old folks were very polite.)

Aren’t you going to get married pretty soon? Don’t you want a family of kids, etc?
