excerpt A Night to Remember
...I knew right away it was one I'd remember.
I was excited, but Grandmother didn't give me a chance,
Before she said, "Settle down! You've got ants in your pants!"
I know I am the apple of her eye,
But sometimes I am really not sure why!
My aunt was truly a fish out of water,
By the way, she is my grandmother's daughter.
Family gatherings seem to make her worry,
And she always hopes, they will end in a hurry!
My grandfather told funny stories, and I was all ears.
He's told some great ones over the years.
When he jokes, I can't even keep a straight face!
He tells each story at the perfect pace. left of me.
