Granny

Ami, the mother of the Brown clan on Alaskan Bush People, is always hinting to her children that she’s more than ready to become a grandmother. Hopefully she won’t be like this granny.

Granny was in her eighties, and much admired for her sweetness and kindness to everyone. Her pastor came to call one early spring afternoon, and she welcomed him into her parlor.

He took a seat while she prepared some tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the minister noticed a water filled, glass bowl sitting on top of it. In the water floated, of all things, a condom.

Imagine his shock, surprise and curiosity! Surely, Miss Granny had flipped! But he felt he couldn’t mention the strange sight in her parlor.

When she returned from the kitchen with the tea and cookies, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and floating ‘item’, but soon it got the better of him, and he could resist no longer.

“Miss Granny,” he said while pointing to the bowl, “I wonder if you would be so kind as to tell me about this?”

“Oh, yes,” Miss Granny replied, “isn’t it wonderful? I was walking downtown last fall and I found this little package. The directions said to put it on the organ, keep it wet, and it would prevent disease! And you know, I haven’t had a cold all winter.”
