Maggie Monday: She Gets Around
Shortly after my grandmother lost her eye, she decided to give up driving. (It did take her a little while, and you don't want to see what her car looked like towards the end of their time together.) She started to rely on my sainted aunt, who lives twenty minutes away (without traffic) to chauffeur her. That worked out really well for Maggie, less so for my aunt.
My mother, who lives almost 1500 miles away, decided to help my aunt out by buying my grandmother coupons for a taxi.
Shortly after she received the coupons my grandmother called my aunt for a ride.
"Are you out of coupons already?" my aunt asks.
"Oh, no. I was saving those."
Ahem. Now Maggie doesn't ask my aunt for rides, she just drops giant hints.
But Maggie's been her mother for a long time so she knows how to ignore her.
