Maggie Monday: The Brownie Edition

This picture shows my grandmother at a fancy restaurant in Vegas. Not sure if this is the restaurant where this story takes place. But she sure does seem happy.

After a few bottles of wine, and no doubt a couple of martoonies, dinner was served. Maggie picked up her steak with her fingers, "what's this," she asks "a brownie?" The dude still cracks up over this story. 

Flash foward a couple of years, everyone--my parents, my cousin's parents, our grandmother-- is gathered at my cousin's house. I picked up some hoagies and cheesesteaks for dinner. My cousin provided brownies for dessert. My cousin puts a piece of brownie in front of my grandmother. "What's this?" she asks. My father, under his breath but loud enough for a couple of us to hear, says, "it sure as hell isn't a filet mignon." The dude, my uncle, and I were doubled over in pain trying not to laugh.

Too funny! I think your grandmother is a happier version of the lady on the Hallmark cards - what's her name - I think maybe it's Marge!

ROFLOL! This story just cracks me up to no end. I think I would have had to leave the table and run outside to laugh. ;)

Have you read Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books? I think your g'ma might be related to Grandma Mazur. LOL
