"You have Two New Messages. First Message Sent Today at 9:19 P.M:

Hello Perele. This is your Grandma Rose. I wanted to ask you if you asked the bus driver why he was so late today. Ok Goodbye."

"Message skipped. Second Message Sent Today at 9:21 P.M.:

Perele, this is your Grandma Rose again. Listen, I just went to the frigidaire and I see that the milk is unopened, which means that you didn't eat any breakfast. You know I went to the store on Thursday and they were out of the 2 percent and skim milk so I bought whole milk and I even made sure that it would be good until the twenty-third. Now I see that you didn't eat any of it. And I bought the Frosty Flakes for you. What's the matter? You didn't know there is milk in this house? What did you eat for breakfast?

Ok goodbye."

and i'd have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids...

You didn't know she would buy milk for you? What is wrong with you? Did you think she would let you starve.

Why didn't you eat the frosty flakes? They are your favorite.

Also, what did the bus driver say?

Do you know that she once made me go back into a store to get correct change after they short changed me a nickel? A nickel!

BTW that store was right near your bus stop. I still remember the incident. It traumatized me.

She probably also noted the lack of crumbs.

A dead give-away.

She can't spell her granddaughter's name?

PT, I would contest the wrong change to get a nickel, and I'm not even Jewish. But I am Scottish, which is supposedly just as bad. ;o)

Kiwi, that *is* her granddaughter's name. (It's Yiddish.)

You can't win with Grandma Rose. If you *don't* leave crumbs, she knows that you didn't have breakfast, but if you *do,* well, as your father has said, your grandmother, being Polish, can see a speck of dust that would be invisible to mere American mortals like us. :)

I could swear every time I've seen it on the whole family's blogs, it's been spelled Perel. Or maybe I'm just crazy. Also quite possible.

It's a Yiddish thing. Like how she calls me "Markileh".

Oops, my apologies, Kiwi. I'm so used to Yiddish diminutes that it didn't even register with me.

Another oops--That should have read "diminutives."
