there is only one hell:
the one we live in now




Did I ever tell you the time I met your grandfather? It was just after the war. Now, your grandfather was in the navy. Or was it the army? No, no it was definitely the navy, because when I saw him for the first time he was in civilian dress but with his little sailor's hat. Or was he wearing his uniform? No, it was definitely your grandfather. I do so miss him.

Have I ever told you the time I first met him? He was in the army coming back from the war, and his sweetie, a girl by the name of Beatrice, I believe, Beatrice Boykin, yes. No, Beatrice Boykin was my neighbor back when we lived in Decatur. You know, that house was a splendid place to live, right next to the school and our church. A little blue house on a hill. 'Course it's not there anymore, what with the city and all. I do miss it though.

Your grandfather once tried to fix the roof one summer, and, oh bless his heart but the look on his face when it started to downpour out of nowhere. I hadn't seen him so out of sorts since... did I ever tell you how he and I first met? It was after the war, he had just come off his boat, and his girl back home had gotten herself hitched to another man. I believe her name was Beth. She was in some of my classes, and she was a looker for her time, she even gave your old grandmama a run for her money.

One time we were opponents in a spelling bee, and at the last moment, I got... what word did I get, oh it was so appropriate... clavicle. That's the one. I broke my clavicle playing outside with the boys when I was younger. I was climbing a tree, fell and broke it. Or was I jumping in the stream? No, no I was jumping into the stream from a tree. The tree was this old oak your great-uncle Charlie and I would play in. We'd sit there for hours pretending we were... what was that?

Oh, I guess it was nothing.

Did I ever tell you the time I met your grandfather?




Welcome to this game of checkers! I'm not sure if more than two people can play checkers at the same time, but I'm sure we can share and make it work. You know I was at Wal-Mart the other day and I bought a game of Chinese checkers, that looks like it can handle more people. Do we want to play that instead?

Welcome to this game of Chinese checkers. The aim of the game is to move the little marbles around until you can jump other players', like in normal checkers. Now I've only played this a few times, despite it being a "traditional" game, be easy on your poor ole Grandmama. If you need instructions, all the rules are probably in the instruction manual or this flash thingy. What? Oh, no, there are no surprises, just the skill of the game.

Wait I thought we were playing checkers. Why do you all have marbles out? If you wanted to play marbles you should have asked. You know, when I was a kid, me and the other kids on our block would get together and shoot marbles. We draw the circle in some sand and stand in a group. We'd simply say whether we wanted to play or be a replacement, whether or not they want private messages, and their address, in case they had to go home early. They nicknamed me "Raven" on account of my dark hair. Your father took after me, too, but you and your sisters both got unlucky, looking like little blarney Irish scamps, just like your mother.

The standard marbles rules apply: don't do anything that could be construed as "not in the spirit of marbles." But, even when I was young I was never a huge stickler for rules, so as long as you don't break the game it'll probably be fine. Just remember it's all for fun, and if Timmy, Tommy? Oh hon I am sorry, it is Tommy though right? Yes, if Tom wins a marble from Mary, don't come crying to me about it. Your father left me in charge, and I reserve the right to punish someone as I see fit for whatever thing they do, and I will not tolerate tears during playtime!

Oh, we're not playing marbles? Well then let's just play checkers, I already have the board, let me just set it up for you all.

Now when we used to play checkers, we'd always say, "jumping jehosephat!" after jumping more than two checkers at a time. It's a, a unique quirk, let's all shout ##JUMPING before re##JEHOSEPHATING, wouldn't that be fun?

Now you don't want to take too long with a move, either. Here, I have an egg timer, I'll set it to go off after a minute or so, if you haven't made a move by then we'll poke you and get you to do something. If you have a reason why you're not moving, like if you want a sandwich or some juice, feel free to tell me -- I like to think I'm fairly reasonable. Does anyone want some juice? I have orange juice, apple juice, and... I'm going to make some sandwiches for you all.

James, "ain't" isn't in the dictionary. Try to speak properly, you are all going to be adults some day, and the words you use reflect who you are.

Does everyone want baloney on their sandwiches? Okay, I'll put some baloney on everyone's. Oh? If you don't like it, then, I guess, let me, I have some salad in here for you. I thought I had some salad. What did I do with the salad? Oh, no, that's right, I gave it to Pete's rabbit. Or was it Laura's rabbit? No, Laura has the fish. A little floating goldfish.


Wait, how many people are playing again?

That's six people! We can get maybe three more that would make a full house, see, that's a card term, it's when you have all the cards you need. If you're going to play cards with Grandmama you need to be on your toes! Heh heh heh!

"Now kids, did I ever tell you about my trip to Paris? Oh, it was a marvelous time, your Grandfather and I... well... we... we took a plane, or, or was it a boat? No, it was a plane, I can't stand boats. I was once on a rowboat with your great grandfather and I threw up all over him. Wait, did I really, or did I just read about it? Hm... No matter.
"I suppose if I went to Paris we saw the tower, there. But, hm, I don't seem to recall a tower. Maybe it was a museum? Or, or..."
